Nonono, he didn't want aluminum shavings ruining his engine. Good luck driving that time bomb!

New guy here, trying not to suck. Can someone give me a quick rundown of everything he did wrong? Aside from the redneck-meets-German-engineer oil setup.

Crappy turbo kit - manifold prone to cracking
Improper location of BOV with stock ECU (fixed later in video)
Stock ECU
Meth with stock ECU
Making a shitty manifold even shittier with that bent plate welded in, instead of rerouting the coolant line

I haven't watched the video since this post was made, so I'm probably forgetting a lot more.

I think it is a new CXRacing turbo setup. Not sure if they will crack or not, but not the normal eBay setup. From the few pictures I have see they look stout, but of an interesting design.

One day in the future I am hoping to get one to test out.

Why would you even gamble like that? Its like this, An unproven cx kit vs. One that actually works, built by a site supporter.

The car in this video didn't even make 200whp.
It got spanked by a Hyundai Genesis, with a 3000gt making him look even worse.
The only thing that makes this car LOOK quick is the mid 15 second SN95 GT he ran.

This thing may be a mid 14 second car, look out everyone.

180hp woulf still be double stock at the rear wheels. Not an insignificant increase.and enough for a lot of people to be happy. Heck, my friend is having a blast with his and I would bet on it putting down less than 140whp. Sure as heck is faster than my stock 1.6. (Not that that says much).

If your MS is giving you trouble, you aren't even close to needing a turbo yet. NOT EVEN CLOSE. AS in months away. Just wait, wait and get good stuff.
Go look at my build. I don't know what the hell I'm doing with ms. I thought I did, but I dont. Now I have a nice looking project, wthout a brain. At this point, I've got so much money wrapped up into it, and so ltitle understanding of the ms, it's not fun. I don't want to melt this thing down to learn how to tune.

Don't end up like me.
