I would definately stay away from that.
If your serious about turbos you'll need a rebuild and a nice turbo setup

Why not? I had a friend offer me a CT26 (twin entry, with ceramic impeller for a 3sgte) for $100, and it was fine. It's just the turbo, not a kit 400 sounds about right for a used t4.

Hehe I like how it says "water cooled"

Kind of like advertising "power brakes" on modern cars...

Oh I'm not saying I would either; if he has to ask, I'm fairly certain he isn't ready to deal with swapping out injectors, plumbing in a FMIC, cutting and welding manifolds, changing the MAP/MAF/Whataver his car has for fuel management, etc etc etc.

guys, the reason it is cheap is because its not a turbo kit.. the only thing that is is the actual turbo..


turbo kits come with the intake and the exhaust attatchedments, or soemtimes manifolds, and they come with the wastegate, the thing that cools it, and all types of other hoses and all..


this is JUST the turbo

When you really want to do such buy first an engine, strip it and rebuilt it with modified parts for getting a better heath flow through the pistons and cylinder head. Then you only have to swap your original engine with the turbo engine. This should only take a few days instead of rebuilt your engine that is in your car now.

looks ok to me,however keep in mind that you will need a lot of other parts. Different headers, exhaust, cams, pistons, o- rings, cylinder head, boost controller, blow-off valve, ect ect. This is hardly the most expensive part of a turbo setup. But it would not be a bad thing to have around, if you were planing on doing a turbo eventually. You'll prolly need to have around $6k (US) to correctly and safely turbo your car.
