I wonder how that would work on an e30 M3 as the title suggests...

... stay away, even the seller has no idea what he's talking about.

yea....but what exactly could be wrong with the kit? like would the turbo be of low quality? manifold might crack? the manifold looks just like the one my friend bought off a guy in missisauga. there's one in the For Sale part of the forum right now.... the kit is 1200 - if the manifold is 400, turbo 600, other parts 200 - could that make sense?
im new to the turbo scene, i want to just run 7-8psi with the markD chip. boosted iX DD ftw! but i want something thats not gonna kick my ass later...

my brother bought his turbo kit for the e30 from mossleman (sp?) turbo systems... their service was good and it shipped pretty fast considering it came all the way from amsterdam i believe...

not from what i've read. the front driveshaft splines are the weak spot, but can be worked around with shims. other than that all i have to worry about is breaking a front diff. and i'll only do that with 400hp+, which im not planning on getting close to.
