    when you put together a turbo kit yourself, do you just get a shop to bend the piping for you? how much does this cost?

    To add to that question, When buying pre-bent tubing from say J.C. Whitney, do you just have to estimate what degree of bends to get. Is there any fool proof method of taking measurements so you know you're getting the right sizes/bends/lengths?

    do you have some reccomendations on which turbine to buy for the first "homemade" turbo kit.

    It looks as if money's gonna be a little tight for awhile, so I was thinking of a used t-25(or whatever) off of a DSM.

    Could you give a breakdown or provide a link that compares different turbines and what their benefits / downfalls are.

    Thanks
