Hey guys i've decided to buy this turbo kit, but wanted to check back with you guys first. I don't know much bout the wastegate, blow off valve, etc. so if they blow plz let me know. Seemed like an unbeatable price. Thx
Well, I've never heard of the "Evolution" Wastegate Assembly or the "Raptor" By Pass / Blow Off Valve Assembly. That's not to say that they are bad products, just saying that I've no experience with them.
one perk with that kit is that he's including a case of motor oil with that. And, from what you can make out on the picture, it appears to come with a log style manifold with ok wastegate location.But don't expect boost until 3.5k-4k rpm with that turbo! That's a big boy. Although he doesn't list any A/R or trim specs for it.
Overall, with what is given, seems like an ok deal.
thx guys i really appreciate the help. I'm fine waiting for the turbo lag... i used to drive a saab 900 turbo and the lag was ridiculous on that thing. I can't imagine a cheaper blow off valve suckign cuz all it erally does is let out air and moisture. Anyways more opinions would still help. Thx
That kit that you see on e-bay is basically a Turbonetics/F-Max Turbo kit. It's not bad, but there are better ones out there. If you can get it for $1900 ggod for you, but I've seen so many with I/C pipe #2 to the IM have a crazy bend that gets scratched from the ground (If the car is lowered) over time.
I've been able to create better, but go for it if you must.
