e30 turbo kits

Any of you guys know anything about these turbo kits being sold on ebay? Just wanted to know if anyone had put one on their cars. Thanks ahead guys, wanting to do some homework on it, looking to put one on.
Here is the link:

Anything on eBay I'd be a little suspicious about, but that's just my personal opinion.

Yea, some e30 i have seen here in the forums that have turbos... wondering what they used.
As for the ebay thing.... only one way to find out also if I don't do the home work, and I don't want to buy it just to test it out.

Good luck with that noise. When turboing an NA motor you need to retard the timing and increase the fuel.

Dont see anything for that.

Dont see any injectors either. I think at ultra low boost, you could run stock chip.

Nothing is worse than detonation to a turbo engine, well maybe overheating. A kit that doesnt address detonation is not a complete kit.

Great input guys, I will love to also hear from people who have used this kit, it pretty much a starter kit and just add more or upgrade to it more or less. From doing more home work most def on the bigger injectors.

Here are some pics of the car so far. Just got the wheels, steering wheel, and suspension yesterday. Big UP to www.need4speedmotors.com Edgar, Edwin, and Hovo the master Tech.
Here are some before and after pics:

Before


After:
Just got the suspension and wheels yesterday along with the Momo steering wheel.

bluebimmerman,
Thanks buddy.

Markseven,
exactly... one time purchase.... if I don't like the products that come with it I will just replace the ones I don't like. Atleast I don't have to source the rest of the system. If I find a good deal on a S50 motor... hell man I will do the swap.

Abused,
The wheels are SportMax 002 et0 offset. 16x8 all around 3" inch lip on those things. The tires are Falkens 205x45x16. The suspension are H&R springs with Bilstein sport shocks.

no doubt man...I've got a sweet deal that just went into effect last week. We just moved into a new house that my in-laws own, and we only have to pay 200 a month! My car fund is going to grow like crazy.(i'd still rather take the loto$) And the best part is my new place is in the country and the roads are supper curvy like in the mountains. I'm going to make a video of it this fall and post it maybe..
