NONE of his turbo kits are china knock offs... show me a thread dedicated to hellion turbo kits cracking and falling apart and not putting down amazing numbers with there incredible simple turbo set ups that he provides to all of us with turbo mustangs. his kit is still made with the exact same stainless steel that the original kits where made with and know utilize mild steel headers. the kit still obtains all acc. the kit still puts down over whelming numbers and has been proven already. Now really.... who in there right mind would come out and build some of the most amazing turbo kits for the last 15yrs. and yeah there not cheap, but thats because you get what you pay for. the guys doing all of the r&d on these kit are john urist and dwayne james. both guys that make over 2000hp and break records. why would they sell out and make garbage after having such a great rep. and ground breaking kit (compound boost, and remote mount gt500) and just throw it away.... no idiot in his right mind would ever do this... i dont understand why some people assume stuff and put down a great company like hellion. and john urist himself.
X2, alex in houston is a "internet know it all", that dont know half of what he thinks he knows.
fact ebay crap is ebay crap AND Urist is NOT selling ebay crap. go ahead buy a ebay turbo kit..........then read all the ACTUAL feedback about these kits on turbo related websites, welds failing, pipes cracking, i like to watch retards blow $1000, THEN spend money with hellion, B&G Turbo or PonyDown Performance.
did alex even stop to think, well lower prices mean lower quality? knock off companies, like half of ebay, buy quality parts then knock them off, cutting quality in half? cheaper material, welding monkeys, thinner flanges, then list the parts with the original kit in the pic? looks the same from a distance....
you might have a bunch of tools, but no common sense when it comes to the real world.
my 86 coupe might only blue book for $2k, but i am pretty sure the street value is slightly higher.
