    I will note before hand that yes, I know ALL about on3's cheap turbos, gates, and BOV's in the past. Im simply making this to inform those interested and to chat about the kits quality/price/gains/times, pros vs cons, etc.. Now on to the topic.

    It seems On3 has finally finished their TT kit for our cars and are getting some impressive #'s and times while keeping the kit VERY affordible. Also, it sounds like they have changed their turbo manufacturer and are going ceramic ball bearing right out of the gate. For the price of $3500 I think this will be a VERY popular kit on these cars provided it doesnt turn out to be a steaming pile of donkey shit. I know most people dont have much negative stuff to say about fit and finish, most of the complaints were about the turbos.

    It seems like it will be available to ship in about a week so I am looking forward to reading customer reviews over the next few months. If it turns out to be a solid kit that doesnt need a ton of modifying then I may be going turbo this winter:banana:

    And the numerous counts of stealing injectors..... Making injectors in some shop and calling them name brands. Then having them fail on customers cars....
    Also reports of horrible customer service.
    I almost ordered a single kit for my 90 coupe I had last year, but after talking to on3 and people who have their kits I decided against it.
    3500 is a great price..... But you will need 2000 more for good stuff soon after you install and run your car.

    Just my opinion....

    You barely get two quality turbochargers by themselves for that price and they aren't big enough to be purchasing quality components at a steep discount. Therefore I don't see how it can't be a pile of cheap parts assembled on plumbing that will most likely not be fixtured properly during production. I'll keep my money and wait for the complaint threads to pop up.

    i would just buy the piping and add my own turbos and fuel system for less money, they have to bad of a rep with their turbos and injectors.

    From what I understand the $3500 is minus injectors, tune, and BAP. Just the turbo kit. I would want to supply my own fuel stuff anyways.

    when something doesn't make sense, it's usually because there is more to the story.

    The V bands (if its v band), turbos, intercooler, wastegates and BOV for a quality turn turbo kit would cost just $3500 easy.


    Here are GOOD prices on everything:
    - Twin precision BB billet turbos - $2800
    - Twin Tial gates - $500
    - Tial BOV - $250
    - Intercooler - $500



    Still missing connectors, t bolt clamps, v band flanges/clamps, labor, piping. Do the math

    All of our kit's come standard with Precision Billet 76mm Turbo's, Precision Wastegates and Tial blow off valves.

    We've made well over 1000rwhp on our kit's right out of the box.

    Was thinking about the hellion single turbo for my 2013 gt. I read through a lot of bad review for the earlier gen cars but only found 3 review for 2011+ and all were good. If you have an experience please pm me. I am pulling the trigger on the kit next week.

    Hellion single kit sucks, do not buy. I have heard good things about the new Twin kit though. Only bad thing I have heard is it takes about twice as long to install as they say it should but if its a well built kit then the extra install time is worth it.

    The last single turbo I bought (ball bearing, water cooled Garrett) cost $1600, and that was a rediculously good deal I got through a friend. It makes NO SENSE that someone can put a kit together with twins for $3500 and have it be anything but poo.

    Is the price going to come down or remain the same when it comes out in Kit form?

    my friend tom has a black coupe thats had a on3 kit for over 2 years with a master power t-76 with a 96 ar and best so far is [email protected] ,,,,,zero problems and no fitmant issues except for squeezing the intercooler between the bumper and AC condenser was tight. i would hardly say they are junk,probably more like the idiot installing. chinese made yes,but what aint made in china! i had one on my own 90 notch, 1 v band was kinda crappy but it didnt leak ,other than that it had a master power t-70, which is your option anyway!i know another 2 valve gt hear running [email protected] with the on3,....i am looking hard at this kit for my auto,.......skip ahead the video to like the 144 mark on the first video . second is of the 2 valve gt.
