Celica Turbo Kit On Ebay

Hey guys check out this celica GTS Turbo kit 4sale on ebay. It sounds pretty complete. I'm sketchy on buying something like that on ebay though. It sounds like the XS Engineering kit maybe? What do you guys/gals think? Turbo Kit

ehhhhh I dunno bro. Buying things like headlights, sometimes even a body kit off ebay is good...but a turbo? Especially spending that much money...and what if it messes up your car? If your serious about getting a turbo youd do it the right way, not buying the kit of ebay...

it is not a personal seller. with that being said, read up on the company, and their test cars/motors, see how they fair. I know Kenne Bell was blowing motors left and right with their new supercharger for the 4.6 2v Mustang engine.

I wouldn't buy it because there are too many possiblities for things to go wrong. For example, the turbo housing might be defective, the manifold may be warped, the waste gate and vaccum hoses could be defective and who knows what else. Unless they give you a signed contract/warranty on parts, I would stay the hell away.

last line of the sale is... "Our turbo systems are proven"

email the seller for some install photos - some dynos... whatever you need to make his "proven" statement a FACT thumbsup

my advice , just get it from X-S engineering.com or turbo-performance.com rather than ebay ,cause you can't be sure and plus it's a lot cheeper than that!

I think more than enough ppl told him that this ebay deal is sour and that he should seek the turbo kit elsewhere.

"we are able to boost the Celica GTS to over 250 wheel horsepower"

later

"Get ready to boost your Toyota Celica GTS to 241 wheel horsepower with this GTS Turbocharger System"

insult

bs
