Opinion on On3's Single Turbo System

I've been reading mixed reviews for the On3 Single Turbo Kit. Most reviews seem to be bad, but there are still a group who have nice things to say. When I tried to search for recent reviews I didn't get much. I found a negative review from 2012, but isn't it likely that they have improved the kit in the last 3 years? Any opinions on their current kit are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

They used to be crap. But they have been stepping it up a lot lately.

It's not a job for the novice that's for sure. My brother runs a speed shop and is installing an On3 single turbo kit right now. Fitment isn't perfect. He has had to cut, bend, and re-weld a few pipes. All the welds do look nice though. I will let you know what kind of power it makes.

Fixed. Also had to dent in some piping for clearance issues.

Wow would be impossible to keep the piping off the ground if you have a low car.

Yea my car is 2 inches lower so that is definitely a concern. I'm also an amateur mechanic and I don't want to bite off more than I can chew, even though I have a good understanding of all the parts and how they work. How much would it cost on average to have the kit installed?

It was started in 6/2013. I think the member was ThatMustangGuy. It's an easy search, just search on On3, the thread had like 1152 posts.

It's costing about $1800 in labor. That price includes the installation of a new clutch

407 rwhp. 550tq on 6lbs boost. Had it making 460rwhp, but it was running out of fuel. Needs bigger injectors and a bigger fuel pump. Probably won't happen any time soon. 407 is plenty if we want to stay on the safe side of overpowering the stock shortblock.
