    Pick 2:

    - cheap
    - reliable
    - fast

    You can't have all 3.

    Okay so 300 warranty? Isn't that a throw away type price if she blows? More concerned about collateral damage.
    Thought, buy kit and swap turbo

    ☝️ This.

    It's all good until the compressor eats itself, or the compressor housing, and your motor ingests a load of cheap Chinese cast aluminum dust.

    In for the partout.

    Sometimes people have to learn their lessons. When I first started building my car, I was buying used parts for cheap. "$100 intercooler set with piping? Hell yeah, all these dumbasses buying new stuff for top dollar. Not me, I'm so smart I'll just get everything off eBay and craigslist for dirt cheap!". Fast forward to when the car is built and I realize the intercooler is trash, turbo is a cheap eBay turbo, clutch was warped etc etc. Just buy new or lightly used quality parts and you'll never go wrong. I've always been burned trying to go cheap. Even Jerry Jones, The Cowboys owner, agrees. He's quoted as saying his biggest regrets on purchases were always underpaying, not overpaying for quality.

    I mean, if you need a new 1g turbo drain line, this is almost worth the cost alone LOL.

    Ha ha right there going for close to $90 now in Ebay. Lucky u can modify a 2g by slotting the holes for $20 LOL. Learning lessons the hard way I agree. Just finished gearing the auto rear diff to work with my 5 speed since the guy i bought my car from forgot to mention the spare diff sitting in the hatch needed the ring and pinion swapped into the 4 bolt installed on the car. So after 8k the rear diff finally burnt the fluid and took the transfercase with it. Lucky I have half a cars drivetrain for replacement parts. Now if my turbo dose die this 300 kit is almost worth it just for new plumbing and seals and gaskets. Use the china turbo and check often for shaft play.

    It's your cars funeral, if you decide to go with the Ebay turbo personally I would just try to find a 14B to get you by and save up for a 16G or 68HTA.. GL!!
