I don't know about its seller, but i learned its easier to just make a turbo kit yourself. First I don't see an exhaust manifold in the picture, second that T25 isn't going to be big enough. Third that incooler looks like its 6" by 6" to small.

1.) that seller has a pretty widely established bad reputation among the VW circles.

2.) seeing as they don't seem to know that the e36 came with the m50 and not the m20, AND that a T25 is *way* too small for EITHER engine... run away.

$2000 for wha? shit doesn't even include a manifold...

just buy a 524td manifold off ebay or find one froma junkyard and buy a turbo off ebay, buy a bigg ass one and get some one to make you some piping to fit the turbo to intake ect, and all the rest you can get off ebay.

_dk_ is right! bad rep from a lot of VW enthousiasts, no customer service, all show no go. Dont buy from them.
