If u want cheap, reliable and good quality build ur own.
I am lacking two things to follow your advice:
1)the grammar skills to understand that post
2)those of us that aren't fabricators need partners to help support our turbo setups. The type of pain my car puts on a hotside requires well thought out design and properly fabricated parts. The small issues over the years that Brian has helped me fix were of the variety that having a welder in the garage wasn't going to address. Years of experience making turbo kits isn't made up easily.
If you are a occasional racer and garage queen then the support factor is less of an issue, and quality may be less tested.
If you put major pain on parts, unless you are a fabricator then you need a partner who has the experience to support and longevity in business.
Each person needs to determine what they require in terms of a product and a relationship with a vendor and make a decision. Budget constrained people that are ok with less then desirable customer service have an option. Those with different requirements have other options.
I would test out an imported B&G hotside if I built a mild street car. It is the matter of right tool for the job.
I wouldn't do anything with ON3 products after I have consumed all the information on this board but that is strictly my opinion. To me customer service and long term relationships are relevant and worth paying a reasonable amount of additional dollars.
