I am finally going to turbo my d15. I have decided to go the ebay route partially out of cost and partially out of curiousity. I will post several "kits" listen to what you all have to say on all the aspects of the kits including experience and opinion. Buy accordingly and then post my results and keep you updated on everything ranging from quality and reliabilty to looks and power. I have ruled out peicing together "mini- kits" and decided to just go with "full turbo kits". The kits are the following:

i clicked the first five links. only the one with the cast manifold would be any good. and even then, just the manifold would be any good. even then, the manifold would be hit or miss on the mounting flange being tapped correctly. 90% of the parts you will get are junk with those "kits".

why not just save up and peice one together or buy a well know good kit?

im gonna tell you right now that fitment sucks ass. i went ebay route. does not include everything such as oil line kit. need extra piping too as you need to custom fit it in. the u bends they have suck and touches the frame. rattles like hell in the car...

none of the manifolds/ downpipes have O2 bung nore does the flange that goes to the cat/test pipe fit right. i had to cut mine and turn it in the angle. also had to weld in my O2 bung. my wastegate set at 6.5psi but creeps to 7-7.5 sometimes.

i actually checked the first few links, realized they are all the same garbage, stopped looking. Just a HF mani, adapterplate from bmcrace.com, oillines from stealthmodeperformance.com, get a custom DP made, socket ECU, etc.

you are goning to end up spending more money on the e-bay bull shit. fixing broken parts over and over after all said and done you will end up spending over 2500 bucks and have what we all have and we paid less.

aight well i bought my kit back in august of 07 and so far nothing that came in the kit has broken or malfunctioned... now i DID have to cut and reweld the downpipe in a number of places for it to fit right, i also hadda cut ONE of the intercooler pipes as well.

other than that, be prepared to make plenty of trips to the home de-pot or lowes for any hardware they might forget to include -_- buttttttt so far i havent had really any prollems with my kit besides the fact that the turbo they included was a .63 hot side .50 cold side which IMO is wayyy too big for an 8 psi DD, but that was my fault for not researching enough.

good luck mayne

those turbos dont really wakeup till about 15psi should have got a tdo4 or something but atleast you have room to grow so its not a total lost get that block built and crank it
