ive never heard of it. its probably a kit that a shop fabbed up kinda like AFI (afi is a decent kit but i dont think they make turbo kits anymore and for the price you can get a peakboost kit which cant be beat for the money). id rather go with a more known kit tbh. maybe someone else can chime in but i dont think many people will say they know what it is.

if you could get more info on it then that would be great, like what parts they are using

never really heard of SFP making turbos, and T3/T04E doesn't say anything about a turbo besides its flanged for a T3 manifold, you would need to find the specs of the turbo

such as the turbine and compressor wheel sizes?

@turbo rsx: i did search it on ebay and came up with nothing....so as imbest123 said it may be house made.

exactly.

yes the trims on those

but your better off sticking with a name brand turbo, like Garrett, Precision, Bullseye, Borg warner, Forced performance etc

nonono i didnt mean the turbo was house made lol. i meant the manifold, downpipe, etc may be house made. a lot of the turbo kits on ebay go under t3/to4e so thats why turbo rsx said what he did. thats my guess also. look under the description for those $800 turbo kits on ebay

ya it would be take off slap on but you definitely would need a retune and dont consider that kit lol. stay with trusted manufacturers
