On 3 performance Turbo.

Has anyone bought one of these? I saw them on late model, and was wondering if they are good and cheap, or just cheap and not worth it. I took my mach to the dyno yesterday and made 336 rwhp so im trying to up it on a budget. Let me know! Thanks.

Search it. People have many problems. Some have had luck. Some had luck with stupid people.

You can throw together a procharged set up for about the same price or less. But like has been stated, some people haven't had any issue and some have had major issues.

I wouldn't do it. Seems like everyone has problems getting everything to fit properly. I've never heard of a on3 build go straight through. However all turbo builds have run ins but these are worse. There's a reason the price is so cheap.

You can't get a turbo kit for less money and the On3 kit, while not best (that would probably be a Hellion). What you have to do is upgrade the V band clamps and use exhaust donuts on some parts of it just to be sure you won't have any leaks. I've seen a few installed and the owners love them. The longer these kits are out the less issues you'll hear. Hell, I can find the link to a current Corral thread, dude has an On3 kit on a BUILT 2V Bullitt making 700+ to the wheels.

Just remember to throw however much $$$ you'll pay for the UPR K member becasue you can't run that kit with the stocker and many other aftermarket Ks.

If all you want to do is get blown, a Vortech S trim will still be much cheaper. Also if you are stick you might want to stay with a supercharger as well. Automatics are where turbos really shine, in fact I'd go so far as to say you NEED an automatic to fully take advantage of all the benefits of a turbo kit.

Slap a KB on there. Wheelstander is making 460/463 with his set up.

But that isn't the cheapest way to go.
