    None of them.

    I'd rather have a 150k-mile used turbo from an S14a than fit one of those.

    ha ha...get off the fence!

    he is right though.
    none of them are Garrett.
    first one is a knock off GT28rs copy
    middle one is a journal bearing copy of the GT28r
    last one is a shocker, doesn't even look like they have stolen anyone else good designs!!

    £300 will get you a pretty good used T28/T25 from a well known brand

    You going T25/T28 then Drizz?.. turbos are cheaper but much more work and expense in the long run compared to bolting on a hybrid!

    How much can it be? Turbo, manifold, modded exhaust, IC pipework and oil/water pipework. Hybrids arent too common lol



    I saw that but a grand? I dont think so lol

    Seems like a reasonable price to me given that its new?

    A brand new GT series garret will cost you like 700-900quid, then manifolds and other custom fabrication to make it all work...

    By the time you've fabricated a downpipe, baught a manifold,sorted out all the other pipes etc, even using a used turbo you're going to have spenda fair bit

    Sorry but i dont have brand new money. A good second hand turbo will do. Manifold £100, do exhaust myself, pipework myself, labour myself...

    If you're good at welding then you'll save a shed load of cash.. so that'd be a bonus.

    There's all of the intake side to think about too.. Lots of silicone, connections, clips, filter etc.. that's another couple of hundred alone.

    Got to be over a grand to do a satisfactory job and that's not including tuning or new pants for when you torque steer through a wall lol.

    You would have had more money to spend on it if you never bought the wheels that rotta said he was selling to me.

    Torque steer? I doubt it lol. Try driving a 300bhp FWD corsa that i took in PX a while ago. I stripped that as it was too dangerous to sell on lol. Got out bid on an s14a T28 today by a tenner :(





    Give up fella, if you have an issue take it out with him. Stop giving me grief. I PMd him, he replied, i went to collect. Thats all i know.

    Im not giving you grief,i know its not your fault. Never heard anything back from the guy after saying he was waiting on a price from a courier. Got any pics of them on yet? I was thinking about getting mine done that sort of colour maybe a bit lighter.

    Looks good. Are you putting the s4 kit on yours too? I like the idea of putting a t28 on mine too but not sure if i want the hassle. You should have a look on one of the gti-r forums and see if anybody is selling one. Im sure the t28 from a gti-r is better than the 200sx ones other than maybe one from a s15.

    Yeah S4 kit. Was debating RS4 kit but not having the power to match the looks is pointless...
    Cheers for the tip!
