    i use there products, well some of them anyways, the turbo headers need to be checked over, sometimes the welds arent strong, also the headers need to be reinforced,
    the turbo is ok, and if it burns up a replacement turbo is about 300$'s
    the intercooler is also a decent piece ,as is the wastegate

    that is also a partial; kit and does not include the intercooler piping,and or the oil feed lines and drain lines.

    all in all they are a great starter kit that u can upgrade down the road

    expect to add in an additional 2-400$'s to finish off the kit.
    + the cost of fuel system upgrades and tunning

    before somone comes in here and say the turbo is junk, ive been running one of those turbos now for over 65k miles with boost levels over 18 psi and havent had any problems


    edit ------------
    also with some of there kits the pipes sometimes are a lil off and dont fit exactly right without some minor mods

    that kit sits the turbo in the engine compartment.

    that kit is a hotside kit.
    basically its has all the parts to hook the turbo upto the ex system.and it comes with an intercooler.

    in order to finish off installing the turbo u would need to buy
    A blow off valve
    A universal intercooler piping kit, or u can get some mandrel bends and make ur own piping.
    u would need a few various silicon couplers and clamps for the intercooler pipes.
    and last but not least u would need an oil feed line and oil drain line kit, this is the worst part of the install cause it requires a fitting welded into the oil pan.
    ^^ all the above would get u a running turbo kit.
    im not to familar witht he ls1's fuel system and how much hp its good for, but at min u would need to buy some 50# injectors,and have hptuners or another way of tunning the ecm

    that kit is good for about a max of 625 hp. if u wanted to go higher then that u would have to purchase a larger turbo

    I can tell you that this kit was probably made in china and is probably a knock off of an american kit somewhere.

    I can tell you that it doesnt look like a real TiAl wastegate....


    The turbo looks REAL shady....good for the dude that ran it for 65k, but the cast looks kinda nasty on the compressor cover.....looks to be a garrett knock off maybe?

    The problem with using something like this is if it DOES eat a turbo you run the risk of your motor eating a compressor wheel.....which would not be a good day, motors and compressor wheels don't get along very well in that fashion.

    it isnt a real tial wastegate its a knock off as is the turbo, the wastegates work great,many many many ppl use them, same goes for the turbos,if u took apart a garrett and that turbo side by side u wouldnt notice a diff.infact u can interchange the parts.
    the other thing is most of those turbos are built with garrett/turbonetics parts .they spec out the same as master power turbos.i.e just under there stated size.
    many ppl on turbomustangs run those turbos,and on tgo there are a few ppl in the 9's using those same kits.not to mention the many supra guys who run those turbos making 650ish hp

    once again the kits arent top quality, but for the price it gives an excellent base to build from and they do work very well
