E36 Turbo Kits for under $5000 CDN NEW on ebay



I'm not selling this, so I dont think it should go into the for sale section, but if anyone is interested this guy is selling two brand new kits and he's got a good ebay rating.

This guy is actually pretty interesting, and a bit spooky I would say. He claims that he is selling Mosselman's turbo kits for m42/m44 engines, yet he does not provide a single picture of the actual kit.(only the pix from the Korman's website)

I'm sure he can send you one, his feedback profile has only one complaint, and that was due to a possible shipping problem

Personally, if i hadn't bought my supercharger kit, I'd be all over this one. I'm not saying you can't be suspicious, but I personally would feel this is a trustworthy seller.
he's sold other turbo and supercharger equipment with nothing but praises.

I am not saying that he is a bad seller. His old ads(2 month ago) used to say that you can run 14PSI on the stock internals with AFPR on m42/m44, which is impossible. From what I understand he sells "custom" kits, which are basically bunches of parts thrown together and called a kit. There is been some discussion about him on BFs about a month ago. I also asked him to provide pictures of his so called kit, and never got a single picture except the ones jacked from the Korman's website.

Hm it sounds fishy on the specs he included.

I mean what's with the "RACE" external wastegate and "RACE" aluminum blow off valve.

It's also interesting how no reprogrammed ECU is required or even a direct replacement ECU, that makes me wonder how can turbo kit run fine with the stock ecu?

Hmm stainless steelexhaust manifold, wouldn't you want to use a cast iron styled exhaust manifold on turbo setup cars?

The dyno curves look a bit spooky, heh.

I personally would stick with Autoactivewerks' turbo kit or even Mtech/Mosslum turbo system.

EDIT: It's better to go the extra mile to spend more money on a company who's proven reliability and knows what they're doing.

You can run up to about ~9PSI using stock ECU, injectors, and AFPR without a lot of problems. (this is supercharged, non intercooled) more than that, and you start to really lean since either the fuel pumps gives out, injectors start to stick open at 100% duty cycle, or one of your fuel lines blows.

The dyno pictures belong to the http://www.kormanfastbmw.com/turbos.htm website that sells Mosselman's kits. The curves are real. What I don't understand is either he is a distributor of Mosselman(I doubt) or he just copied their kit.

Yeah exactly so it's not a good idea to run a stock ECU. OBviously you're going to run a bit more lean and usually for FI cars it's better to run it a bit more rich than lean, such as around 11:x or 12:x by the time you hit past about 4000rpm + to redline.
