THANKS,
Matt

I have never had a problem buying parts on ebay. Just make sure you buy REAL BRAND items and not the cheap ebay knock offs.

Pipping is pipping and the turbos are RB20 turbochargers so i think it worth it.

Just be prepared to do some fabricating on your own, those kits rarely bolt right on without problems. But as long as you're comfortable with buying one, go for it. I myself am always wary of buying used parts because something is always missing from the kit.

Those are not direct bolt on. Be prepared for a lot of fabrication. You will not be able to use the supplied exhaust manifolds. Look at pics of mustangs with turbos and you'll see what I mean.

I dont see what the problem is. If your getting name brand parts, why does it matter what site you order from?

the only two companies that I would buy a turbo kit from ebay is, pony down turbo kits or HP performance. they sell their stuff on ebay sometimes. but they are definitely not 1200.

A rb20 had a tiny turbo and most people throw them away.1200 won't happen unless you can weld and spend most of it on the turbo.

That would be the on3performance kit he has. Haven't heard any complaints on that kit just yet, here's the web site even thought this is an old thread some of yall might find it useful.
