Very interesting....but there's no tuning included :( Hate to sound like a big plug but If someone bought this for a e36 + my turbo chip tune I have FS you would have a running, proper turbo kit for peanuts...hmmm

forwarding this to some friends!

^^There you go! Someone here is gonna be able to add 100hp+ for less than $2G's...If only it was for an e46 M3 :(

You and me both


...kind of :P

I saw it last night, wonder what shape the turbo itself is in.

FYI it sells BNIB from the manufacture for $900.

It's a Godspeed turbo.. So Ebay...

Everything else looks alright. if you put a quality wastegate and a quality turbo on it, you'd be set.

But realistically, it's cheaper new.

e30_kid89 10-18-2012 06:08 PM

I'm gonna say it's still worth it....that manifold is not the godspeed but the SPA cast manifold...$500-$600 alone on ebay...and I think it includes an complete 3" exhaust...getting one made is 500-1000 alone, so there's already mad savings there...

SamE30e 10-18-2012 08:06 PM

Yeah, I guess if you factor in shipping. But I would swap out the turbo.. Or the wastegate at the very least.

your typical 3" mandrel bent turbo exhaust complete with muffler/res, cat, o2 bungs, flanges, wastegate tie-in can easily top 1k, the biggest factor is if it being done in SS versus mild steel, then the cost goes down....

SiR 10-19-2012 10:20 AM

All depends on where you go. Ive done at least 3 over the yrs(all ss). never cost 1k. usually been about half of that.

Here's a 2.5" SS exhaust system I got done for $600 recently. It wouldn't have costed much more to do a 3" but I don't need anything more than 2.5" for this car. The picture is a shitty cell pic, but the shop did a really nice job with the fit and finish...

$600 including all the materials I see in that pic? or just the labor?

also that's not mandrel bent piping from what I can see... just saying.
