Interesting.... would not mind bidding on it, but the down pipes are so low...

wow.... that looks like a nice kit. If it includes everything, including the catback exhaust, then it's a good deal. It doesn't look like the DP will be any lower than your axle (probably significantly higher) so that shouldn't be a problem. Just make sure it includes the up pipe, turbo, turbo back exhaust, intercooler and all the I/C piping, connectors, elbows, clamps, etc. I would also email him and ask how much fab, modification and cutting is required. Also look to see if it will be smog legal (catalytic converter), as that could be an issue down the road. Ask him what supporting mods he has (fuel pump, injectors, engine mapping, etc) as that might make a big difference in the total cost of this.

Good luck, and keep us updated.

Alex,

Came across these threads on MUD - maybe the seller pointed you to these already...Obviously legit although the auction sure has shot up $$ wise so not sure if you are even still thinking about it :eek:

That turbo sounds awesome but it appears that you wouldn't just want to slap it on :) - Probably want to pretty much rebuild the engine first

For that price, I'd like a filter on the intake.

Looks like it is back up for sale due to a bum ebay bidder...
