quetion about a turbo kit.......

How's it going guys... I'm new on the web site and I was trying to see if anyone has ever herd of this company On3Performance that is selling turbo kits. I don't really want to spend more then 2000 dollars on a turbo kit so I found this kit for 1500 bucks on ebay. I have a 306 with Canfield heads out of the box with a Wolverine 1087 cam with a Holley SystemX intake with a C4. Hopefully I can find someone in here that has used this kit or has herd anything about this turbo kit. I appreciate it very much more the help. Thanks

Do a search here, and on theturboforums. There are threads both places about them.

If you don’t have more than 2k to spend on a turbo kit, either buy a good quality used kit or save up for one.

As for the on3 kit, it is produced entirely over-seas….so you get what you pay for. The base kit uses cheap 316 stainless with cheap wastegates and BOV’s and it’s produced by cheap Asian labor.

Will it produce good power? Most likely. Will it last? Likely not.

Bottom line….if you are looking for a decent priced new kit, I’d look into the lower end B&G or Ponydown kits (~ $2500 using far better quality components and manufactured right here in the U.S.A.).

Again, if you don’t want to spend over $2k on a new turbo kit……you shouldn’t be entertaining the idea of buying one in the first place.

+1 on all of the above.

I just took my time on looking for a kit and got a Used Cartech SS single T-64 kit complete with injectors and mass air. I even got the instructions for 2500.00. Just keep your eye open. Just my opinion.

1994 Mustang Cobra/ Rio Red clearcoat/ K&N and Flowmasters/ 14.65 @ 96.51mph Stock.
1994 GT/Fobra/ Laser Red w/ CHP 306ci shortblock, GT-40x heads/Trick Flow intake/1.7 rollers/ 42's#/ Steeda #19 Cam/Cartech T-64 Turbo kit

I hear that you can upgrade the turbo for $279 for the MP70 or $389 on the 76mm Master Power turbo with on year warranty. Do you guys think that's a bad deal or still not a good deal for the money?? Thanks for the help

There is far more to the kit than the turbo, and far better options available for not much more money.

If you are that hard pressed for money, either save up or look on www.turbomustangs.com classified section for a decent used kit.

I've heard of the Master Power turbos being used in import applications. The concensus there seems to be they're just not as efficient as a good, name brand turbo. Chinese turbos have come a long ways in terms of quality and not grenading, but they're still reverse engineered counterfeits made in sweatshops. I wouldn't fear the turbo itself so much as getting manifolds with warped flanged that crack after a week due to crappy welds and stuff like that. There's a million and 1 things that could suck with that kit, I just wouldn't do it and I haven't even been to the other site to read what others have to say.

B&G Turbo kits

only slightly over your budget.
just suck it up and spend the $2,500-2,900 for a good kit.

The turbo is NOT all that needs to be upgraded tho. IF it was then it would be a good deal but after you upgrade turbo,wastegate,bov,intercooler and DONT forget the Mild steel upgrade to keep the headers from cracking after a year!!! Your looking at the same cost as a quality kit.

NEVER do business with Sam Rivera AKA Sam Wilson.

Excellent choice. He has what is most likely the best customer service available, and an excellent quality kit.

ponydown sells them or a local exhaust shop can fab one up fairly cheap.

You should also figure in all the parts needed to finish the install. Such as injectors , fuel pump, mass air , tune.

I have a set of 60lb injectors with a 255 Forced Ind and with a Trex fuel pump. On the tune I have Dez Racing in the area that is really good with tunning so I'll mostly be alset... the only thing i need is a Y-PIPE so I can run my cat back exhaust but I'll most likely go to a muffler shop to have one done for me

I'm surprised nobody said this, but....
If the kit is that close to your budget max, then forget it...
You should figure in to add 50% on top of the cost of the kit and basics for parts to make it go and misc. stuff...
If you can afford that, then you should consider a different route, or enjoy driving your car as it sits, reliable and probably making a decent amount of power to be fun...

If you go the Chinese route, great for you, thanks for thinking of the others here in the US who are losing their jobs 100 a minute.
The turbo has a 1 year warranty on it, but the rest of the kit probably wont last that long.
