Red face Another "kit" lol

Hey guys, a friend sent me this link of it being sold locally for 550:
Quote:
I have up for sale is my Miata Custom Turbo Kit. This kit if tuned correctly will put your Miata somewhere in the 200whp neighborhood. I just bought a Begi Kit so I have no need for my old setup. Here's what I'm selling and how much I originally got it for:

-16G Turbo /w Steel Braid Oil Line $300
-God Speed FMI $80
-JGS Manifold $400
-Custom Pipings $200
-Blitz BOV $100
-Custom Downpipe (Looks wierd but does the job)
I'll throw in a tapped oil pan for free if you want.

$550 OBO - Low ***** offer will be ignored -

Note: I will not part out!!!
Now I know it is absolutely not complete, but does include alot of parts and id have to get a few things and can get this in asap. What do you think? is it worth it for me to get? What are the pro's and cons?

PS: yes I know ill need engine management, injectors, etc etc etc to complete it, but even still if its in good condition, Im thinking this would total about 1-1.5K to get running.

if it is for the correct engine, that's a pretty good deal.

The 16G can always be upgraded later fairly cheaply for more power.

I was more or less saying that there isn't much info at all so that he should find out more details especially if this will even bolt up to his cr before deciding whether or not to purchase it.

Does the IC piping actually work with the listed intercooler and turbo position? If so, that's not a bad deal at all. I love the 16g.

Well, obviously I will be asking him whether it fits or not, and the kit is said to have been used together with everything pictured. I will take a look at it in person, and see the condition before i buy, but it seems like a good deal imo

Is it a real MHI 16G or a Chinacharger 16G?
