Default I want a Complete turbo kit for $800 or less

Is this possible?

Other then Ebay where should I start looking?

If I spend anymore I risk losing a testi in my sleep... bobbit style...

In other words im looking for anyone who has done a budget set up and had success. Let me know what and where you bought the gear.

And yes Im a so dont expect me to have the skill/tools to do any fabricating... im looking strickly bolt on.

Thx.

Ego

Lurk in the for sale section of this forum until someone posts up a used kit.

Curly linked you to a bunch of threads. He means you should do some research. I personally don't think you should even consider doing this for $800...unless this is just a project car.

Do some research, it shouldn't be impossible with a bunch of patiently-awaited used parts but since you said you don't really have the skills, I doubt any success would come out of this.

That's a ballsy thing to say coming from someone who has no clue what they are doing. I predict epic fail on your build. Good luck.

not even close. I'm the nice guy that will tell you how hard you're failing before the real ******** skullfuck you with their 10 foot dicks and **** on your burning ashes.

You come in here, don't research jack ****, don't know jack ****, don't make any effort to learn. Make a faggit *** thread stating an insanely low budget, your lack of skills to pull it off on such an insanely low budget, blatantly disregard what this site stands for and want us to lick your anus clean while we blow you?

I suggest you start over.

Make an intro thread.
We don't spoon feed.
Fail less

It wasn't a link to a particular thread, it was a link to the whole DIY Turbo section, where all of the threads on cheap turbo setups are to be found.

Long story short: It is possible to throw together a working turbo setup for $800. It requires patience, good scrounging abilities, and some fabrication work. It is not for the faint of heart, the short of experience, or folks who need their car as a daily driver while the work is going on.

You can get a complete kit for about $1,500 from Bell, and this is about as cheap as it gets for a reliable, all-parts-included package.

No, that's Hustler. I'm sure he'll be around shortly. Be warned, he is in fact a douchebag, and unfortunately for you, Braineack (the Admin) made him a moderator last week. On the plus side, he doesn't seem to have found the "ban" button yet.

Strictly bolt on for $800... I don't think so. At least not for anything that won't crumble off your car 1000 miles later.

Judging by your ability to search I question you even being able to bolt **** on.
