Turbo kits questions.....

Are there any turbo kits out there that do not require cutting on the car? Im interested in a kit that I can bolt on, get a tune and drive it. I dont want to deal with parts not fitting, cutting things up, and a bunch of head aches. Im willing to pay more for a kit that is quality, fits right, and ill be happy with. This will be going on a bone stock 5.0.

The only cutting on mine with my On3 kit was with the front bumper cover. And I don't think there's any way you're gonna fit an intercooler behind that fascia without some cutting, regardless of who's kit you use.

If I remember correctly, a member on here said he had installed almost every single kit out there and had a fitment issue with almost all. One kit may fit perfectly on one car but not the next. From what I have read, it just kinda comes with the territory. Just go with a kit that offers good customer service as I have come to know will become necessary at some point. Ask me how I know

Not saying I am an expert or have installed other kits other than my own. Just passing on knowledge I have spent days researching. Good Luck!
