Yeah yeah i know i know Ebay is very bs when it comes to this but check this turbo kit out. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/03-M...5QQihZ012QQcategoryZ33742QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Lets just consider the fact that it is NOT complete but they do have good parts the bad is they says its for mazda 6's as well which we both are aware uses our engine well not the v6 ... how shady the info is though. the good is all you need a haltech or a greddy emanage. anywayz. just something to think on thats all. ^_^

When it comes to turbos, I would NOT trust an ebay item without a big name company brand on the kit. This is an unknown brand. Hi-Boost would be one I would trust and even then, whos to say they didn't swap out certain parts.

it's ok if you want to get a turbo kit this way, but be prepaired to work on it. none of those pipes are cut to size, the bov flange is not attached, and there is no exhaust manifold let alone downpipe.

to be perfecty honest when you get a kit from hiboost or sci your paying for fitment, convieniance, and a tune. that's really it. you can go and buy the turbo, the haltech or emanage, and intercooler and some pipeing and really call it a day if you want to diy. it's just that it's a lot of work especially if you don't have the tools and time to do it.

DO NOT BUY A EMANAGE LIKE SLEEPING SAID

get a haltech or a microtech, running a emanage will not work with our
car and many have good evidences supporting that.

I'd go with hiboost, considering SCI had MANY CS issues the past month...

My big tip off aside from the price was the line "High quality product" as the first description on each sub category. If you are going aftermarket with a turbo, spend the money and get something decent. It takes as much work to install a shitty turbo set up as it does a quality one.
