Well the TURBO NOT HIT BLOCK, so that is good


But you get a downpipe that goes nowhere, no intake setup, no oil/coolant fittings, nothing to increase your fuel delivery, and intercooler with no mounts, and piping which I would question that would actually fit.

That kit was discussed on page 3 OF THIS THREAD, lol

At which point we made fun of it up until you posted it again, at which point we will continue to make fun of it.

did you look at the websites i told you to look at?

Don't you ever mention or think about a supercharger again. Just because supercharger not hit block doesn't mean it's awesome.

I'm running the CXRacing turbo kit.
1st. I had to mod out both the mani to get the turbo on, and the downpipe to get it to mount to the turbo.
2nd. It did not come with a return ( though I knew that when I bought it.)
3rd. It didn't come with any management system, FMA, or anything, but luckly I had read though DIY FaQ so many times and had bought everything Brain suggested that I didn't even start it until I had one of everything on the list. (still want MS DAMNIT)

In the end, if you just a tech don't buy this kit (nor any other off EGAY), but if you are a true mechanic that can problem solve maybe you'll be alright. I will stick up for CXRacing in that they sent me quality parts.

FYI RPM's kill engines. Well not kill, just spin bearings. Just gave me a reason to go with MS, and I'm only a few days out till I get my engine back from the machine shop with all new internals!!!!! SO HAPPY!!

Bipes!!!! But the problem turned out to be main bearings. Thanks god I caught it early. I didn't spin any I caught them just before. But no matter, balanced, polished, honed, and cleaned. Now Wisco Pistons/ rod kit, fresh seals, and ready to put back together. Still waiting to hear from a few people on a built MS, or I'll have to get me a PAP.

FMU. Not FMA.
PnP, not PAP.

And if the parts are so quality, they would have fit properly without needing to be modded.

I don't mind the "need modification to fit" part of it. Its the "cracking a month later" part that bugs me

LOL, my bad. Well the turbo is okay, charge pipes are good. Mani, and downpipe questionable. Luckly I know how to Tig. I do know that the bolts that came with the kit suck. Other then that a different BOV its a good starter kit.
