I don't like cheap/r32/turbo any combination of those words don't mix and the r doesn't like cheap either :p

That's because they don't specialise in turbo kits for the R32 but instead specialise in turbots themselves, like Owen Developments.
So you could buy a Turbo designed for another car and stick it on? Or do you mean you can buy some sort of Universal turbo? Sorry I don't know anything on the subject

Cheers

You can use many different turbos that are used on different cars, obviously the correct brackets etc are needed.

Effectively build your own kit or for replacements

That's ok, it wouldn't have made any difference with my limited knowledge

The gt35r isn't designed or any specific car , it's like you say a universal turbo with the right manifold it can be fitted to almost any car

I see thxs guys

So do people spend £10,000 for a specific kit for mechanical reasons?

"10,000" kits will include everthing needed, brackets, front mounts, turbos, hoses ect and the kit will be specifically made for that car for example tested and optimised so that not too much pressure is put on the engine but enough that it can maintain enough power.

Build your own kit and you have the risk of something going wrong but more than likely you build your own you have some knowledge.

I'd rather buy a kit, all the R&D has been done, reliability would be higher, there are many advantages to buying a kit.

One advantage to building your own anything for that matter is cost. But you would really need to know your stuff to mix and match

I think plenty of research and knowledge is the key , I wouldn't pay £10000 for a kit ever as it is was over priced , your paying alot for the R&D that's already been done
