Don't forget there is much more needed than just the turbo. You will need all the duct work, possibly an intercooler, oil line setup, etc. prob best to find a complete kit.

The turbo is only 1 of many parts needed.

Don't forget you will get what you paid for. That is by far the cheapest kit i've ever seen. If you decide to get it keep us updated on how well it holds up.

Don't mean to be a downer here, I am super happy you are looking into a turbo for your truck, But if you think spending less than 500 buks is going to get you something decent, think again.

I doubt your truck is only worth 1500 buks, so call an engine builder, like Nelson Racing Engines. He turns out some of the sickest stuff you have ever seen, call him and tell him you are looking at an e bay turbo kit, and don't tell him what it will cost. He will not laugh at you, but educate you.

Trust me man, if that kit worked, every idiot on the street would have one.

Good luck on your build, and I in no way meant any offense to what you are trying to do in any way, shape or form.

Kev

Agreed^^^^^!!!!!!!!!!

If you are dead set on getting a turbo i would look into an STS Turbo Kit or Ask around your local performance shops to see if any can custom build you a kit. I would definitely steer clear of the kits on EBAY!

Also there is alot more to installing a turbo than just a turbo.You will need a custom tune, most likely you will need new fuel injectors for the increase in air forced into the combustion chamber. Like the others said you will need oil cooling, ducting, possible an intercooler, and STS provides all of these for a very reasonable price.

Here is the link to STS: http://www.ststurbo.com/dodge_ram_hemi_
