advice needed on turbo kits!
« on: June 04, 2009, 10:30:48 pm »
would it be worth buying a full turbo kit from rothe

or do u reckon it would be cheaper buying the manifold and sourcing the rest myself?

trying to keep the budget down but dont mind paying for quality!

Will definately be cheaper to get the parts seperately. If you are in no rush then you will be able to find them second hand over a period of time. If you wanna do it all in one go and dont mind spending the money then a kit isnt the worst way to go i guess.

For eg. German ebay, ocassionaly here or clubpolo will find you a second hand manifold and downpipe. A scrappy will find you a k03 (need one from audi a4 or passat). A polo gt cam shaft will do the job although you may prefer a specific jobbie from schrick etc. A turbo chip from ppp maybe. A few other bits that you would expect such as turbo oil feeds, a bit of pipework, air filter and you will get there for less, just some research and time fitting it all and you will get there!
