WTF is a speed shop? The place across the street from me is a speed house. Is that the same thing?

Seriously though dude, what were you expecting to happen with your original post? You did literally every single thing, that the seniors tell noobs to NOT do. You did all of them, and then got defensive.

Never said it was a kit just ordered parts from ebay.

Keep building turbo kits for marginal profits. Congrats on the successful business

Stop saying seriously, you sound like a moron. Besides the manifold being a piece and turbo ultimately failing the kit will be solid with larger injectors and ms. I've seen plenty of garrett turbos and high end parts fail along the way of building cars. Giving ebay a shot for the lulz is worth the small price of 750.

There are other sites that would have made you feel great about your rad building skills, and awesome thrift shopping. This isnt one of them.

You've done a wonderful job introducing yourself here, I wont even spend the eXtra second to give you a negi-cat. Best of luck to you.

The moron is the one who spends money on something that even they think will fail.

I actually fabricate parts, and don't depend on a sweet speed shop.

This guy doesn't have to sacrifice the one bad house in my neighborhood to max out my iras or 401k. Maybe better decsion making? The funny thing is you think the parts you buy won't fail.

Give me a neg cat please. Also having a speed shop weld a few braces for me is hardly depending on someone to fab my stuff.

So because fm or begi charge 10 times as much for the same garrett turbo can pick up used makes me a moron? Do you know garrett turbos are rebuilt all the time? I have other builds I would rather waste more money on then my miata. Sorry I decided to take the cheap route and have fun with it once a week.

Didn't mean to get you all butt hurt.

What used Garrett turbo? You have a brand new 2871 China turbo. Non Garrett.

For only 7psi key word is lag
7psi At 4k+ rpm

A used sr20 turbo is same price and much more responsive
