    hey guys i been wanting to boost my car but i dont have much cash i looked at the turbo kits that you can buy from ebay for like 600 bucks now i know that most of ebay turbos are not good but i found a guy that sells kits and peoples reviews says that the turbo is great and stuff. i plan on running low boost on stock engine untill i get my new engine build but thats way down the road if i do build a new engine that will handle a good a mount of boost i will probably go with a good name brand turbo kit or something, but for now what would you guys suggest, should i buy the ebay turbo kit and run low boost on my stock engine? would it last any if i run low boost? also i will have a good tune with this set up may go with larger injectors fuel pump the bassics but nothing crazy that cost a lot of money. just trying to decide one weather to buy the ebay kit of just stay stock for now untill i save up and get a good turbo kit from turbonetics or something. heres a link to the kit i been looking at.

    just save and get a good name brand kit to start with, there is always a chance there junk even if the reviews are good, so i would just save a bit more and get a good kit, i dont know if there still on sale or not but about a month ago greddy kits was on sale for 900 bucks
