    Says new in box $1300. Its for a GSR

    I have a Stock b18C1 in a hatch.

    Will it fit?

    Is it any good?

    His HP claims seem a little high for the level of boost. I'd be ok with less HP than hes claiming.

    doesnt sound like a true turbonetics kit to me. i actually installed one on a gsr for a kid once and it came with a spearco intercooler, a turbonetics blowoff valve and a externally gated turbo with a turbonetics waste gate

    That is not a turbonetics kit, I guarantee it. You don't sell a new-in-box ANYTHING for $2k less than what you bought it for, period.


    Keep that bootleg bullshit away from the hatch.

    Yea if any part in the kit doesn't say Turbonetics or Spearco on it then its not the real thing. And the turbos say Turbonetics in red.
