I agree with the others. You get what you pay for. You can probably find a cheap ebay kit for somewhere in the neighborhood of $1500? Might be optomistic about that. But I always thought that if you were to turbo a car, do it right and go with something like Kinetic. Or look into the forced induction, and maybe find a secondhand one. Either way I would look into the forced inductions forum.
some of the ebay turbos are ok, cx racing seems to have ok ones,
im running one of there t3t4 .57 trim turbos on my aba which runs 22 psi daily and goes to the drags pretty often, have never had a problem with it the years its been on and im not nice to it.
but yes there not as efficient as a big dollar turbo thats why im stepping up to a pt 6262 with the new build.
I say go with a kit if you dont have much experience with this kind of stuff.
A kit will have most of what you would need, new or used (as long as all the used parts are there). if you piece it together you might run the risk of getting the wrong parts or worst, installing the wrong parts and end up costing you more than a kit would have when you break something. plus the huge amounts of frustration. assuming that you are installing it yourself.
if you pay a shop to install you are in for a lot of $$.
if its your daily then dump the vrt plans.
its such a pain in the @ss waiting for the car to warm up and im always worried about someone stealing that racehorse outta my driveway.
