    Ya, saw that. It's a little funky though. Enlarged exhaust manifold seems nice but the turbo doesn't have a wastegate? Yet it talks about using one.

    I'd hope somebody would just make a header rather than mod existing manifolds.

    100% rating on the seller yet the comments are kept private? What's with that?

    I'm waiting for someone to try and write a review first. Just a litle sketchy and sparse info to me.

    Maybe if I knew more about turbos.....

    Well the way I understood it, the turbo in the pic is non waste gated but he's offering the waste gated, which still doesn't make sense , if he has the waste gated why not put a pic of it.
    Still think it's a good price but I alread have 3 and I am selling one with an engine.
    :D

    The exhaust manifold he showing is a Banks unit. I just bought one from Banks. All he is doing is taking a banks exhaust and adding a turbo and few other little pieces. The description of the kit says an internal wastegate. His price aint half bad though. The new Banks turbo exhaust manifold cost me $345, add a good used GM5 turbo for $245 and $50-100 for flanges and whatnot. His price aint that far off.

    But I do agree, him not having any reviews. I'd be leary of sending that kind of $$$.
