is this a joke?


that's a universal kit....and everything needs to be fabricated, even the pipes they send you need to be modified

in order for it to work you will need:

- to not buy any "generic" turbo from ebay
- exhaust manifolds/X-over pipe
- injectors
- DME tuning
- larger MAFS or MAP conversion
- fabrication to relocate whatever you displace with the turbocharger and associated plumbing.


that just touches the tip of the iceberg......there's so much more you need.



So, in conclusion, if you happen to find what you might think is an E39 M5 turbo "kit", just check the cost. If it's legitimate, expect a price tag of $20,000 USD or more

:hihi:

EXTRA PARTS SUCH AS MANIFOLD IS REQUIRED. READ NOTES BELOW THOROUGHLY!!
NOTE :


* Not all parts are bolt-on. Universal piping kit will need to be custom modified at an exhaust shop to adjust for the correct bends. *
* Requires a down pipe which needs to be connected to existing exhaust. A custom adapter needs to be fabricated from a place such as an exhaust shop. *
* Other parts you need or should get is Turbo Manifold, Boost Controller, Turbo Timer, and Engine/Fuel Management System. *
* Professional Installation is Highly Recommended (No Instructions Included)!! *
*Item colors might vary from pictures depending on stock on hand please contact us, [email protected] for any requests.*

There is e31 with turbocharged s62 in Ukraine, it makes 670hp and 800nm of torque with 0,8 bar. But it is definitely much more expensive.

Well my mistake then,

Its just people talk alot more about throwing on superchargers on there M5's then a turbocharger.

Guess its more cost efficient?

I think almost every engine out there has had someone in the world chuck a turbo on it in the quest for more power....

Even a V12 Lamborghini!
