Default Bolt on kit complete?

Hi all, decided against an engine swap in my 92 1.6 Eunos - didnt make an awful lot of sense really.

Thought a cheap option would be the basic greddy kit. I have found one being sold used. I alwasy think buying car bits second hand can be a big mistake, if you find somethings gone, rusty or missing your in trouble.

Could anyone with the knowledge look over whats included and tell me if it is *complete* i wasn sure why it would include parts that were not in the original kit - are they subsitutues?

Turbo (greddy)
Manifold (greddy)
Downpipe (greddy),
New Walbro Fuel Pump (for mx5),
Malpassi Fuel Regulator,
XS Boost Controller (used),
Xs Blow Off Valve (used),
Another Boost controller (used),
Intake Pipe (greddy),
Intake Pipe (not greddy),
Roll of Insulated tape for downpipe,
Air Filter Adapter (used),
Vacuum Hose Kit

Thanks very much

Hi,

What you are describing sounds a lot like the one on Ebay.

It does not look like it is missing anything though. Happy bidding!

There are a dozen different models of Walbro that will drop in to the Miata fuel pump housing... which Walbro is it? The original FPR was a Vortech unit, I've never heard of Malpassi, but it looks like a typical disc-type FPR.

Here's a pic of the kit off the Greddy website.
Manifold
Turbo
Downpipe
2x Intake pipes
Vortech FPR
Filter
Oil Feed line+Hardware
Oil Drain line/Flange
2x Vaccum lines
3x Silicone Hoses+Worm Clamps

IMHO, it's not worth $500 though... $750 is absurd. I've seen much more complete kits, including an intercooler, injectors, MSD, and other equipment go for $750. Plus, you did see that it's located in Puerto Rico, right... shipping is going to be around $200 I would think. My advice, pass.

Ya, I'd pass. If you look long enough, you'll find a good deal.
