At such a low price surely it's worth a pop? It cant make your engine lose power and surely it can't do any damage?
There is no way anyone should use that. Its just way too cheap

It looks like a kit of universal parts,.so no manifold and no engine management.

And no picture.

All for a price around that of a second hand turbocharger.

As with everything eBay, if it looks too good to be true it probably is...

Good find.....but yeah if the turbo is cheap crap and it falls apart (blades break or passes oil), then yeah that will damage your engine!

lol well thats a no go then... i'd much rather a second hand but good quality turbo!

Randomly searched on ebay.com for FN2 bits and found it, saw some other stuff.... carbon fibre spoiler which looks nice!

Some other stuff too which seemed well priced! But I guess tax would be killer unless you know someone in america who will bring it next time they see you like meeee!

Buy the kit, ditch the turbo and just buy a T3 flanged turbo from the likes of Garrett / Borg Warner / Precision etc.

And you'll get all the other bits you need from where exactly?
Aeroquip fixtures and fittings and braided hoses are readily available easily for the oil / water lines.

Manifold is T3 flanged so will bolt to turbo, intake compressor side can be fabricated easily either with silicone joiners or a custom one made.

5 bolt discharge flange will come with the turbo and can be married up to a downpipe.

what more do you need exactly?

***Edit*** Just noticed no manifold with the kit, so need one of those made up, on reflection if you weren't keeping the turbo the kit probably isn't cost effective.
