    Ive got an XSpower kit, no complaints here, I wouldnt base your judgements off a few negative customers, look how many kits and feed back they have for sales, compare it to the amount of complaints , you can find maybe 50 threads on the wide web on bad situations out of thousands of sold kits, dunno man..no one makes a flawless product, there is always a chance for defect.

      likewise, when people give positive feedbacks, they give them right after they receive shipment. later down the line they could explode and not post a followup feedback. also, many probably assume it is their fault, or a fluke.

      there is no guessing here. a turbine spinning at 150,000 rpm requires balancing and precision machining. they cannot afford to do this. it requires higher quality materials. they cannot afford this. the manifolds require higher quality welding. they cannot afford this.

      if yours doesn't blow up, good for you. most people reading this thread are new to turbos and not prepared to be screwed. i have welders, tools, time and knowledge available to take such risks. these guys don't.

      we are saving them much headache, time, and money by just commanding them to move on. don't pass go. just listen to those with experience, without question, and don't look back. good luck.

        good stuff.

        honda-tech is talkin about the same thing. i dont see how these kits are "chinese" when they made here in the US.

          stupid, stupid. Their either cdm or jdm shit product, made out of melted down tincans. The mods do not want you to argue with a VIP post I would think.


          oooh, and made in the US? Thats a stupid assumption that you didnt even read one thread to make, let alone fifty. It's coming from a chinese factory, the closest any of that shit comes to america, is canada.

            Most turbo are made in brazil and the welds from united states. You seems someone who doesnt know much about canadians. I own the SS kit, and my grand is pushing 230 hp for 5 months now

                It's fine but if youre going to buy a kit for 2,000$ why not go full-rice?

                    I can't believe people spend their money on this junk. These kits come from the same factory that make garden tools, BBQ tongs, and other stuff. How could someone doing that type of manufacturing have the know-how, ability, and complete testing resources to pop-out turbo kits the way they do? They don't. Companies like Full-Race, RevHard, Inline Pro, Stage-6 Motorsports, Precision Turbo, etc, etc have had tons of R&D time not to mention the quality of product they produce with their manifolds, Piping, and the products they develop and use in their kits. Why would you spend 2K dollars on an eBay junk kit when you could have a kit from a RELIABLE and PROFESSIONAL company like the above listed for a few hundred dollars more? Its really a now-brainer decision. Stay away from this stuff and others like them. Knock-off BOV's, WasteGates, Intercoolers, Turbos, etc, don't have any place in the tuner community. If you want to be rice, then go ahead and run rice product. Just don't come to us complaining when it brakes when you take your first test-drive and it ruins your engine and all the product you just bought from junk-bay.

                      I have a 90 integra. I'm thinking about going with a turbo. This is my first import, but i've had alot of v8s so i'm not new to speed. I want to know what makes the kits from ebay so bad? Where do you get your info from about them, like where are they made? If you never owned one, how do you know it is junk? Do you know someone who owned one? I'm not trying to be sarcastic or anything , I'm just trying to get some facts before I go turbo and get a bad turbo.

                          ask some of the customers that have had them for a while, you do know there is a history thing called feedback.......so why not ask them? (it shows their purchase from months past....)

                              Not to start a bitch fest but last I knew these came with garret internals now. I know the first turboes they were making split in 2. I have a buddy with an Ls running 7 psi with a kit from them and he likes to drive like a dumb ass ricer everywhere so he has gotten plenty of use from the kit and still no problems.

                              Also have a buddy with a semi built sohc (yeah I told him that sohc's suck also) anyway he has just the xs turbo, has had it for over a year tuned for max 18psi track and 10-12psi street and has never had a problem. From what I've heard they are only having problems with there wastegates and bov's that they make now.
