Turbo kit

I have been wanting to turbo charge my 95 M3 for the longest time but cant afford those really nice active autowerke kits. I have found some on ebay but they are really cheap and I am worried about fitment and the all around function of those kits. has anyone had any experience with those kits or just any advise in general? I have about $2,500.00 to spend. I already have the turner motor sports stg.1 kit

tcd makes quality kits, but they are priced at like 55xx.. im in the same boat bro.. 95 m3 here too.

make the smart choice.. i cheaped out when turboing one of my 3 series' before and regretted it and redid several pieces of it more then once. just do it right the first time.

if you really are budget, get a quality (666 or TCD) manifold, quality name brand turbo, and a good source for tuning. the rest is easily fabricated.. but a good manifold and turbo and tuning is key to making the whole thing work well and reliably.

i was planning a garrett gt35r, Tcd cast manifold, and still havent found good source for obd1 motronic programming yet.

Those ebay kits are junk. The manifolds crack, the turbo supposedly don't last very long, and most of the other pieces are clearly not quality, plus the fact i'm pretty sure most of those kits don't come with tuning, which would be another grand+.
