all i can say is i know a handful of people that went that route with varying results. anywhere from catastrophic failure to it worked fine to the day they sold the car. if you do go this route already plan ahead to buy a real turbo shortly after and possibly replace other components along the way. so if you have the funds or are ok to wait until you have the funds have it done right the first time so your not out 1000 bucks for the kit and tune and such. plus the cost of a new engine if the turbo comes apart.
