Single Turbo Kit For Our Cars $2500
 
I was just looking at Hawks site (there local and always had awesome dealings with these guys) I just seen this turbo kit seems very well priced! Just thought I would pass it on.

If it looks too good to be true ... then it likely is!

It'd be a case of buying this ... having annoying issues, or not get substantial power gains ... then wishing you'd gone for a legit kit.

You only want to spend $2.5k ... a cam/CAI intake/exhaust/tune would be the best bang for your bucks IMO.

From the pic the parts look really well put together but before buying try searching more on it

I don't know, there are good and bad reviews on those threads. Doesn't look like very good quality, but it might do the job assuming you get an upgraded turbo.

Some one buy it and let us know...:biggrin:

Yeeeeah, stay away. I read that their Customer Service is horrid (this video shows it) and that their parts are China junk.
If you want to go fast, the last thing you want to do is spend money on junk parts. NEVER cheap out on a build.

We see the same post every couple of months...... If it was worth 2500 dollars more people would have it. Its junk.

It is all just china stuff and not the best design. I would expect to replace everything over a few years as it fails. How much is reliability worth to you? Getting towed a bunch adds up quickly.

Junk indeed. Won't even fix this stuff anymore.
I ask them why they didn't buy spares...
Always get a funny look.
