GTS TURBO

I was researching it out and came across this.

Anyone have any opinions on it, looks pretty decent and its cheaper than the XS turbo, one guy said he could get it for me for like 2500, let me know of what you guys think about this.
Thanks

for the price..it looks & sounds decent.

i'm curious of what the #'s will be though when running between 7 & 9 psi (the usual psi for a turbocharger). it's hard to recommend though without having some dyno #'s in that range.

also, i wouldn't recommend anyone be a guinea pig...reliability is key in any aftermarket accessory so let it play out for at least a couple of years. thumbsup

sounds good (although risky--but someones gotta do it thumbsup)

definately post back and let us know how it goes--almost everyone here would be interested in turbo kit twice as cheap as the xs engineering turbo (which also has problems) thumbsup

illusive (ecelica user--you can find him in the "racing" forum has said one of his teammates (at least i think its a teammate) has the xs and it's not doing his car good at all. in fact he recommends that no one buy it until some kinks are worked out.

i've also heard of some other problems with the xs (more minor) and coupled with the history of turbos generally having more problems than a supercharger it's jut not worth spending 5k for right now. thumbsup

SHI_GTS was having a lot of problems huh? Like what? Last I heard, he just had trouble with a vaccum line attachment or something. I didn't hear anything more serious than that.
