the kit is universal so you will have to cut and fab pipes, this kit is not "plug and play" The waste gate, bov, turbo and boost adjuster i would buy from a reputable company. the ebay turbos have a poor turbo housing and crack. the bov and waste gate tends to leak on ebay kits and the boost controller will pop under the first turbo surge


Edit, also i would not use that oil filter sandwich plate for the feed line to the turbo. i would also buy reputable parts for that as well. so basically in a nut shell, any part that is very important i would buy name brand. and you wont use the battery relocation kit on an i4 tibby. im not an i4 person but i remember reading somewhere that you will need a alt relocation bracket? read up on that

The only way someone should buy these 'universal' kits is if you know EVERYTHING there is to know about installing a turbo system into your EXACT car.

You WILL have to fabricate tubing and many other pieces in order to make this system work.

The cost and time of all this far outweighs the savings of the ebay kit.

Don't waste your time, unless you want your car to be a rolling shell for at least 9 months.

Don't get me wrong good parts can be sold on Ebay but I wouldn't waste your money on that kit..I saw a evo turbo manifold modified a bit and fit on the I4 motor..you could probably get the turbo and manifold at a decent price

eBay turbos kick ass! Don't let any punk with a naturally aspirated car who can't afford to buy a $2,500 turbo ( so he don't have one), tell you that an eBay turbo is not cool.
