the only thing with the ebay turbo kit is that the turbo it comes with is crap but you can save alot of money by getting the kit and keeping the intercooler and the oil lines and the piping and mani just get a 300z t3 tubo and ues it and sell the ebay "T3" :? turbo.

thats what i was thinking.....use the manifold and stuff....they may not be the best quality but they will work until funds allow for a jgs or gz..... so if i type in T04E in ebay are most of those turbos alright?
Like this one?

my word advice from about a year of research is that if it moves do not buy it from ssac. ie wastegate, turbo, bov etc...

the manifold you posted was the ssac top mount with a t3/t4 flange if you want to run a t25/t28 turbo with the t2 flange go ahead and grab the ssac bottom mount manifold i have read it works great.

basicly all those kits are the same. they all use the same FMIC setup, same bov setup same manifold set up. and all of the have **** turbos. your getter off buying a used T25/28 off some forum member than spending $240 on that crappy turbo. any thig that dont say "nissan", "greddy" or some other major turbo manufacture itsnt worth $40, and greddy "style" it just a cope so any thing with the word "style" is worth $20.

just go back on ebay and look up a manifold, FMIC with piping, BOV, injectors, skyline fuel pump. buy your turbo from this or some other forum and your oil lines from JGS tools.

i bought my RB20 turbo with 27K streight from japan for $250, it came in 5 days. but dont get a rb20 turbo because every thing that bolts or screws into it will have to be made, due to the fact that no ones knows any thing about them.
