    I am curious if anyone is familiar with the turbos that on3 performance sells with their kits. I know they offer both a GT30 and GT35 but what I am not sure of, is if they are designed in house or outsourced. They appear to be Garrett unit's but with their own cast vband housings but I am no expert.
     
  2. They appear to be chinese garret/tial replicas.

    Guess that would help explain the price in comparison to every other single kit

    That's what I was gonna say... They all make them look like garret or BW to seem more legit

    I have a efr 9174 ive been thinking about scooping this up and ditching the turbo, intercooler, wastegate, charge pipe , and bov. IDK if the efr would fit though lol
     
  8. Only time will tell if the single pipe can withstand the weight of a turbo after a few months or years of heat cycling.

  10. Stay away from on3, they are pretty much eBay turbos. They got a bad rap in the mustang world. Don't let the cheap price lure you in

    The manifold is ~$2500. Same range as other N54 manifolds. Single scroll and you can add a Precise turbo with Tile bovs which gives the perception of a "deal".
    Guys are really sensitive/defensive about any critical discussion regarding manifold. Hopefully that won't prevent any real feedback and review info from them on how it holds up.

    Oh, I didn't realize they were charging so much for their manifold. So I guess its just all the other components which are cheaper?

    Basically. To be honest the manifold looks like a train wreck and they likely have a higher profit margin then the name brand.

    Interesting. Well in that light I guess someone needs to make a cheap log manifold for those on a budget.
