    don't do it...

    Basically everyone who has a BMW and comes across those kits pretty much asks the same question, are they any good?

    The general response you'll get is no, they are cheap rubbish that have a tendency to break and cause damage to your engine (turbo blades exploding into the engine etc,)

    I'm personally yet to see some one who this has actually happened to, but some times something so cheap is something to be worried out!

    I don't want to "preach" but please use better grammar

    From what I've read they spend a lot of time rewelding the manifolds as they have a tendency to split and the last thing you want is turbo parts shattering through your engine.

    just search ebay and turbo on this forum and have a look for yourself!

    if it sounds too good to be true then it often is, how come a normal turbo kit will cost ££££'s yet for less than a thousand pounds buys you the kit? i wasnt sure that bmw did a 323 in the early e30's? what is the engine like? strong enough for a turbo? surely worth building up a great foundation like chips, induction, other performance parts before turbo charging an engine.

    I bet,------no I'M CERTAIN that this kit doesn't come with a bottom end kit as even with a low mileage engine the crank journals etc will end up waving at you on the wrong side of the sump

    the m20b25 has been turbo'd alot and is said to hold 350hp reliable on standard internals with arp bottom end bolts and head studs. A common route people go for management is megasquirt or vems. Got to say though, if your planning on forged pistons and steel conrods, the l;ast thing i would be doing is scripy on the rest of it.

    330ci clubsport
