Ive got a mk2 golf as a project car and just contemplating different things for the engine side of things and have been reading about building own turbos.

My dad has his own business as a mechanic so i have access to the workshop and obviously his help..

Anyways, would i be best of buying a kit from somewhere like USA or Germany and getting shipped over here or sourcing parts individually?

Cheers :)

USA x 1000

My turbo cost 1/2 the price they retail in the uk (G 3071R)

So buy the kit as a whole from the states?

Or peice it together from parts sourced from uk.

i think peicing it together would be cheaper than buying a kit.

99% sure it would be cheaper to buy it all in the states mate, i travel tot he states a lot with my dad being american and everything is so much cheaper than the UK, usually by around 50 %

If it's good quality a kit will be much cheaper and easier, if you want special components then source individually.
