    Some vendors may sell a Blouch, FP, etc. turbo on eBay; no problem.

    The $300-400 turbos, absolutely not.

    If you're looking to save money, buy a used turbo from the classified section on here or Nasioc.

    Its kinda a gamble about what your going to get and how long it lasts. My STi had a replica TiAL Blowoff valve for a while and the thing would open randomly and make me stall out

    If you can't afford to do it right, then you can't afford to do it at all.

    you would be better off buying a used lower mileage TD04 for $100-$150 bucks and throwing that in. Otherwise you will be spending a good chunk of money. Fuel pump, injectors, intercooler, turbo, install, tune or EM. It adds up quick

    edit: ignore this post. didnt pay attention to the op in saying he has all the supporting mods. As for turbo. Find a good Vf series turbo and enjoy that for a while.

    A used VF and you'll have money left. A little bit more and you can get a legitimate 16G.
