Default turbo?

I just got done modding my bike, so now its on to my next project, my truck...

my dad has a '04 ram hemi, so i gotta get some more HPs, and i think a turbo will do me some good... i was just looking on ebay and the turbos on there are around 6-800 bucks and that doesn't sound right... im used to dealing with bikes and when it comes to turbos your looking at around 3Gs...

is that a decent price range or do any of your know of some other places with decent turbo kits

Sounds pretty cheap for a turbo kit . Must be just a turbo , a rebuilt one at that .

Don't buy ebay turbo's. I've never had problems with Borg's. That's my recommendation. What kind of power are you looking for?

Sorry I missed this thread! If you're looking at turbos kits that are less than $1000, you're gonna get a turbo that's only WORTH $600... and it's ain't gonna be pretty. At least it won't barf the internals into the intake like a supercharger will, but when it comes to turbos, you NEED to spend the money. A quality dependable turbo kit will start around $4000 and go from there depending on what you have planned. I'm a personal fan of garret turbos, but then again, my only turbo'd vehicles have been diesels.

chinese ebay turbos are CRAP! Trust me, I have had to replace several peoples. Also its usually a T3/T4 .60....great turbo for less than 3.0L displacement, a little small for bigger displacement.
