Having been a member of this forum for nearly 3 months now, is it really possible that you have yet to learn to use the search features of this glorious website?

Not only has this question been asked a
THOUSAND
MOTHER
*******
TIMES

and been answered nearly as many, but there are stickied threads dedicated to this very topic.

Use the MOTHERFUCKING search button. Advanced search->Search by title->Type in "ebay turbo"

HOLY ****!

Look at all those threads about EBAY TURBO KITS. Its like ******* christmas up in this bitch!

Don't whine and ask for other responses in this thread. Get off your lazy *** and start reading.

A) You're Canadian (that doesn't bode well)

B) You asked the question that must not be asked

Just kidding about the Canadian thing, but seriously, next time just use the search button before you ask a question. I'll almost guarantee you that any sort of thing you could possibly ask about has already been answered at least 5 times on this forum. It just gets old after a while.

This isn't a novice forum for people to get spoon fed. Its a DIY forum. treat it that way

Awwwwww dont feel bad! Youre totally welcome, welcome to use the search button. If you go to the "diy turbo" sub-forum ther is a thread right at the top that reads "ebay turbo kits". It is essentially a giant database of all the "ebay turbo kit" questions. I think you need to do some click work and search around. But to answer your question, i think your time would be better spent saving some more money and either buy a prefabbed kit from greddy, begi, flyin miata, take your pick. Unless you have the ability to piece together your own kit and do it yourself, this will save you some money and gain you alot of experience. Just remember before you ask a question do your due diligence and search, if after two or three hours of real searching you cannot find your answer THEN and only then, you should ask your question.

Ebay kits are just fine. You can even run up to 20psi on stock injectors, just make sure to run lots of timing to prevent detonation.
Easy 300hp for under 2 grand total.

Welcome to the forum, You'll find alot of good information on this site just take your time to do a little research before you ask a question, in most cases you'll find the answer was already asked by someone else.

There oughta be an 'autoban' policy if anyone posts one of these threads... I mean, whoever posts one of these threads is probably a ******* moron that doesn't need to be working on their car anyway (or even bothering a local mechanic or friends to install an 'ebay turbo kit') If they can't search, they're quite simply too stupid to be on the board, imo. I would also argue that they need to be sterilized because there is no way anyone that stupid could be contributing much value to sociecty, but that'd be impossible to implement so... automatic ban ftw!

I agree that there should be an autoban policy. We should autoban all the fucktards that post in a thread just to be a dick after the initial point has been made. If this community wants to have any sort of longevity and a good new member base, the last thing it needs is 20 dickless ******s making retarded one line posts in a thread just to circle jerk about a noob who didn't search.

I mean, Jesus ******* Christ, you can't even spell or punctuate worth a ****. And while the OP hopefully got the point and will take the time to search before making a pointless post in the future, I'm willing to bet that you will continue to write like a 14 year old dumbass who spent too much time sucking dick and not enough time figuring out how to break up a ******* paragraph (which I personally think makes you look orders of magnitude more stupid than somebody who is new and didn't search the first time).

If we are going to sterilize people who don't yet know the rules, we should also get illiterate ********* on the same bandwagon.
