Simple turbo kit (ebay)
Hi guys!

Yesterday a customer sent me a little ebay turbo "kit" for he's sr20de low port. The kit have (ebay parts):

- T3/T4 Hybrid .50/.63 turbocharger.
- 38mm wastegate.
- manual boost controller.
- Type RS bov.

Other parts:
- SSAC manifold.
- 2.5"downpipe.
- 30x11x2.5 intercooler.
- Ebay 2.5" piping kit.
- 3" exhaust.

My question is for 10psi, is CONFIABLE the EBAY manual boost controller and the wastegate? Experiences with ebay parts? I have good experience with ebay turbocharger but only on little turbo setups, more of 10psi BOOOMMM!!!

make sure the exhaust housing on the turbo is not glued together. also check all the welds on the manifold.

There is a local guy who uses the kits a lot. He's told me repeatedly that the turbos generally need some work because the tolerances are too loose and machine work is a bit shoddy. Also said the bov or wastegate are crap I forget which. Personally I don't buy it but there are a few cars running around the NW with these kits.

as for the wastegate and BOV ebay ones are crap, they dont function well

i have seen a lot of problems with the manifolds cracking there are a few guys around me that brace them and they have had good luck , I have personally went for a ride in my buddys eclipse making a full pass down the highway and the wastegate flange almost falls off

I have good experience with ebay bov's, only on little turbo kit's, no more of 15 psi.

Get the welds redone on the manifold, junk the turbo, junk the wastegate, junk the boost controller. Actually junk the manifold and just run a stock gtir mani and turbo. Those Ebay turbos last like 5k and than they start smoking. I would rather bolt garbage to the side of my car than run those "Jdm sport" ebay turbos. Not being a dick, just saying. Do it right once.

those ebay turbo's arent bad man

its just most ppl that run them, cheap out on other important places like tuning and oil lines/restrictors and etc. I seen an sr20 with a $200 ebay t3/t4 make 350whp and is still running 10kmiles later
