If you read over at turbomustangs.com you'll find a lot of the cheaper knock-offs on E-bay tend to stress crack / warp A LOT sooner than a quality piece... (like B&G turbo kits)

Current: 1994 Cobra - 200k+ miles, mostly stock
Previous: 1994 GT - Built 347 with boost

i had b&g's old style single turbo headers sold it to a freind helped him install it and came across a problem. the passanger side header wouldn't fit because he has convertable motor mount's. we then had to use stock motor mount's so, after he got the car dyno'd the car kept ripping mount's left from right! i still dont get how you build a turbo kit around stock mount's noing damn well nobody use's stock motor mount's with the torque turbo motor's put out just my 2cent's.

i have never personally used them but know a couple of people that have used them and have had fitment problems, cracking at welds ect... with that being said some people have had great success with them. i personally use ptk but there are few other companies that i would not hesitate to use. to each his own. try them out and if it doesnt work you lost what, $450

FYI, all B&G kit's were fabbed up using Energy Suspension mounts. They happen to be the same size as stock mounts…and if he would have called and asked he would have found that out.

that's cool, ptk is a good kit but back to what i was saying i asked the guy that use's those ebay headers said the only thing he had to do is find the right vband clamp's no cracking no fitment problems. he's happy with the headers

FYI, as previously stated stock (87-92) mounts are the same size as the energy poly mounts…which he has used since the beginning.

There is no crying over here. Your failing to understand my point...there was no problem with the original design. If you would have simply used energy's poly motor mounts instead of the weak stockers you would not have had a problem.

People always have a comment on the EBay kits but 90% including the TurboMustang site have never used or seen the product in person. I am using a Ebay kit and have already put 8k miles on it since May 1st. It is a copy of a great kit and yes it is Chinese but I wish I could hire the kids and bring them here because my headers had the best Tig welding I have ever seen and the 304SS is really 304SS I had my brother test it at his metallurgy lab at work. The kit I am using is 80% and you need to complete the other 20% but what a savings even if the turbo don't last. I installed these same Turbos on kits from same company on six different Miata for a local club and that was 2+ years ago and they are still daily driving and racing with them. I am sure they have many miles on them by now. Yes somethings on the kit I would do different if I designed it but nothing that caused me any real issues.
