Ive got a 1991 Mustang Gt, with a mostly stock 302 shortblock. I hear a lot of smack talk on "Ebay Turbos" but was wondering how bad they really are? I want to turbo My mustang and run just like 7-8 pounds of boost.
The Turbo Kit: 1979 1993 Ford Mustang Twin Turbo Kit 750HP Package TT 260 289 302 351 5 0L 5L | eBay

Need opinions on if it would be worth the $800, and even if the turbos themselves end up being junk i could get some nicer ones for a few hundred a piece and still have less into it than any like Hellion turbo charger kit. Im a huge turbo fan and any input would help so please anyone with advice let me know what you think. Thanks.:bounce2:

Good idea...but those really are junk...from fitment, to stress resistance, to power output...etc.

You want a good deal? Get on corral.net, browse the used power adder parts till you find a cheap single turbo hotside from on3, then add yourself to the "Sloppy Mechanics" page on facebook. Once on there, contact Matt Happel and/or Viren Singh and ask for the "Denmah Special" for turbo parts. Will get you an actually good chinese 69mm GT45 turbo, intercooler, and other parts. Then just put it together.

OR...just try to find a used on3 or boost brothers single turbo kit for your 302. You'll end up spending 1000-1500 or so...but will be much happier by the time you are done installing it all...then it's on to making power.

Thanks Alot for the information. I have heard a lot of good from the On3 Performance single turbo kit and was thinking just to save the $1600 for their turbo kit. From what ive read its the best for its price as far as power and reliability. Looks like its time to start saving!

The "Denmah Special" that I mentioned will put down more power per turbo comparison...but you will have to mix and match a little to put that kit together. Not much work...but doesn't come as a package like a new On3 kit.

If you are into saving money, the only real wearable part is the turbo. Buy a used kit and get a new/different turbo of your choice.

good luck, message me if you need some quick advice or something. I've been through it.

Just to put something into perspective......a good BOV and a good wategate will cost you over $500 minimum for the pair.
