I'd get their 67mm ball bearing turbo but yes, their turbos are made in the same plant now as a lot of other bigger name ones. On3 did have their "teething" issues getting off the ground but now they're established and the quality is up to par. I just hope they don't start charging as much as Hellion/BG in the next few years. They've done really great to bring the prices of these kits down.


There is always the option of a good used centrifugal supercharger kit as well if you decide you don't want to do a turbo. Cheaper, easier to install, easier to tune and will make more than enough power to split the block on a 302.

As long as they keep the overhead low like it is in theory the prices should stay lower

Yeah hopefully but ppl get greedy. He could raise his prices pretty substantially and still undercut Hellion by $500-$1000. I hope not...


And to the original poster, just FYI that price you see for the On3 kit of $1999 or whatever it is (about that). That is not the final price you will pay. You have to add in air and fuel upgrades plus the tune obviously. Figure double that price by the time you are done.

The prices are going up, already. The 11-14 kit will cost you about 4k. The 15 kit is close to 5k after everything.

Yep... It used to be $3300 IIRC. I know he made a few improvements but its getting pricey. To the point where the full Paxton kit kind of looks like a better option unless you are going max effort or something.
