There is no such thing as a turbo kit for a BMW for $450!

Wow that is garbage

People do say good things about that 24x12x3 intercooler that SSAutochrome makes though, apparently its pretty damn good quality for the price, I thought I even heard that some supra guy did some flow tests on it and showed how it is similar to many of the much more expensive name brand cored intercoolers.

FREEZEEEEE....PUT THE TURBO KIT DOWN SLOWLY!!! Stay away from SS Autochrome....chinese made copied shitty stuff with welds that crack at room temperature. If you ever buy something from them just buy the intercooler. Not that its that good but its the onlything that is half decent!

I've seen SS autochrome headers/exhaust pipes. Honestly?

People talk too much shit.

Is it great?
no
would i put it on my car?
no
Is it going to make your car explode immediatly after installing it?

no, probably not.

Having said that, headers are just pipes. A whole turbo kit is a different story.

That is why i said i would limit the buys to the IC stuff. Their stuff are copies so some are good. But the quality of them sucks. I would not get a manifold that a)needs modifications to fit
b)needs to be welded all the time and c) have bits inside that may fall in and damage something like the turbo! Its a good buy if you improve them e.g. do all the welds again and clean it inside.
