    I believe that they have started to brace their manifolds to prevent them from cracking. It also says that it has Garret internals on the turbo and a 1 year warranty. Who knows, maybe they're finally getting their quality up to an acceptable level.

    I wouldnt even waste my time. If ANYTHING is wrong or off there is NO WAY to contact them to complain. It fuckin sucks. Spend a few bucks more and buy quality name brand parts.

    i understand you get what you pay for but as a high school student making SHIT money i'm not sure what to do, i already ordered RC 310cc injectors and a Vortec FMU...what if i'm just planning to run 6lbs or less...like i just want some more ponies but w/o the benjamins...PLUS i'm planning on selling the car b4 winter anyway to some rich douche at my school who doesn't know better...i think it's not an easy decision

    the only part you have to worry about breaking the engine would be is the wastegate. piping, intercooler that kinda shit is fine. i have a tial k/o wastegate and can not regulate boost worth a shit.

    if you're planning to sell the car, don't even bother. you won't get your ROI on the mods.

    Not to mention you dont HAVE to buy the turbo kit. You can piece it together as you have funds ;)

    A guy at the shop I hang out at just put that kit on his b16 crx. On the drive back from dyno tuning he blew the turbo. The seals went bad, and the exhaust turbine is missing chunks. He bought a garrett as a replecement.
