    i'm thinking of making my own... but after i did the math it will be pretty damn close to what i'd spend on a cheap kit... i'm not sure if i'm going to do it or not...

    Talk to as many people that deal with turbos as you can, research is very important when it comes to building your own turbo kit, but I'm sure you already know that.

    I helped a friend of mine on a few ocassions. Im pretty sure he came in under what it would cost him to buy one and he got a tubular k-member too. Its not bad to do. We also did a custom FMIC on mine as well. Its all in the routing but its not bad if you are handy with tools
