Their manifolds crack and their turbos don't last. I have seen picks where one turbo literally fell apart.

So ur gonna spend $600+ on some tubing and an oil feed line. You're not going to be able to run much boost on a stock setup. The pistons, injectors, and ecu will not be able to handle much boost at all. I would recomend doing more research before you buy something.
