Don't use ebay. what car and model do you have that would be the first question... second what kind of power are you trying to make

Cheap. Fast. Reliable.

You can only pick two.

Ebay shouldn't be an option, especially if you want quality or reliability.

Won't be an easy task though.

A honda with a turbo can actually get better mpg if you don't get on it... even with getting on it, it still will get better gas than most cars especially with only 250fwhp.

Don't buy a kit, but parts seperatly, and you will get a better deal. I'd personally go with ONLY a cast iron exhaust manifold a t3 to dsm flange adapter and a 14b mitsubishi turbo, dsm injectors ebay intercooler, 1g dsm bov, hondata, and call it day.

I got a Buddy with a b16a in a eg hatch, Ssautochrome manifold, Garrett turbo (idk the spec's), tial wastegate and bov. ebay intercooler, and piping. He makes really good power. He makes 218whp on 4 lbs of boost. Id say peice a good decent kit, Ebay intercoolers are ok and pipig.

Blox cast iron manifold - 215$
ebay Piping- 120$
Ebay intercooler- 120$
Tial wastegate -250 $
Tial Bov -250$
Down pipe- 150-200$
turbo- There are decent used turbos on honda-tech at a decent price, but a new precision entry lvl is about 650$
Tune- est. 500-600$


I Mean this isnt a very cheap kit but its about cheap then the 3,000$ drag kit.

Good luck.
