Yes it is well worth it, but you need the piggyback ECU to get the most out of it. Kit is now £1799 and he only charges £300 to fit and set up. Piggyback supplied, fitted and mapped is another £650. Will get somewhere between 260 to 280 bhp for less than 3 grand so an increase or well over 100bhp, so yes I would say well worth it. Mine was on the Dyno at 260bhp at 9psi on stock internals and pulls like a train. Turbo boost comes in at about 2800rpm. Kit also works on the 300 too. You won't be disappointed trust me.....

It is chep, ish, would be a lot cheper if you sourced the parts yourself. 

I'm not convinced on the actual turbo, there are better out there.

its about bangs for your buck and to those who know what they are doing there may be cheaper ways of sourcing it, but there are a lot of us drivers who are not mechanics. So this option is a good way to go if you don't possess expertise in that way and the parts are new and not second hand. the specialist who looks after my car who builds track and performance cars reckons it would cost double that cost for a full custom built set up. you are also restricted by the standard internals, anything over 10 psi and it can blow your engine even with an ECU upgrade. So it depends on who you are than knowledge you possess as to whether it is good value.

I'm no mechanic, but most people know one. If a person sourced all the parts he is selling in this kit they would save quite a lot, even after paying someone to fit it, would still save a lot. But I notice now people are just out to make money out the rest of us, whereas years ago people would help each other on sourcing parts so they could save money. All about greed!

Sorry but we don't need trolls on this forum. I don't know any mechanics and certainly not anyone I would trust to source and fit a turbo to my car. Secondly, if you don't like the price of something then don't buy it, there is no need to be a sad troll and be so rude about someone you don't know. Thirdly, the guy selling the kits if very highly thought of and widely liked in the 200 community and does give advice and help to others and has done for many years. And you don't need your Richbtrook tax holder anymore as they scrapped tax disks a while ago........ I hope one day you grow up.

Mike, you know me weve met a few times in the past. All I did was display what I thought without any insults thrown. But it seems that andyk134 has taken too much salt on this and has resorted to try and offend me to boost his own wiltered ego.

It's fine, as I am grown up enough not to throw an insult nor will I retaliate to his insults towards me. 

Slightly shocked he isn't a bit more mature a person of his age.

What I am saying is true and people who are buddies with these 'money hungy' folk will lay the gauntlet in defence to their name!

PS Not trolling. Good day :)
