You and your big-money setup Jason ... grr, makes me want a fast boosted Honda.

Of course the bandwagon is nearing the end of its shelf life. It's gone from foreign, to underground, to baller, to overdone, to being supported by the entry-level aftermarket. That's usually when things are about to die off.

Just waiting for the next trend.

Well Tommy if you look at the mani (see all that Orange shit on the left) it was cracked and actually in 2 pieces (which they tried to glue back together with silicone but failed miserably) so it wasn't boosting (which is why I got the car so cheap). I plan on putting the Turbo back on come spring. I'm just going to do it right and not Half Ass it like the previous owner.


If you want a new mani i have a cast one, brand new. PM for details.

Call it garbage all you want. Ebay is a good start for people without much money. I pieced a full turbo kit together for 400 bucks. Manifold hasn't cracked once. wastegate tube broke, once, from not having a support brace, welded it back and it's been fine.
Ebay turbos work fine. I know many people with them, and a few of them have been running them daily for years, never once had a problem.

Im with this guy^ my first turbo kit was ebay "garbage". All and all worked wonderful. The stuff isnt made out high quality stuff but if your looking for a cheap midpower setup ebay is the shit.  :P

Did i fucking say that? NO. I said the shit works. And it's a good START for people without much money. I'm not sayin it's the best, just sayin it's cheap and it works.

Sorry... Is it just me or... If you can't afford to spend AT LEAST the price of what the motor would be to get replaced or repaired WHEN you fuck it up, cause chances are, you WILL fuck it up.... ESPECIALLY with a junk, inefficient turbo setup.  Then you shouldn't be turboing your car in the first place.

This is coming from a guy that hasent owned an ebay setup. Because he has a fat wallet and cortney as his friend. Of course hes going to talk shit on them.

I've seen ebay turbo setups run without too much hassle. It think it's more the fact that people buying ebay parts are often the same people who fail to tune their cars.

How many people run non eBay setups? What does having green as a friend have to do with purchasing a real turbo setup? He couldn't have chose that setup after hours of research?

You can honestly find everything on Honda-tech for way cheaper by no named companies to piece your turbo kit.

HAHAHA will fuck it up?? Six months, 7psi, on a base map down loaded off the net. Shit works great. NEVER had a problem. And hey guess what?? IF it blows up, SWEET, it was 200 bucks for a low-mileage d15, 400 bucks for a turbo kit, and i had a shit load of fun with it. totally worth it. So what it's not a 10 second racecar.....i dont give a fuck.....I'm taking my time saving the money to buy what i need for my next turbo set up. Fuck using credit cards.
