I have a question... where did you pull that $10,000 figure from? I've seen a stage II kit from TCD that gives you 300whp at 14psi for $5100 and a full stainless exhaust from them for $700, but I have never seen anything close to a $10k turbo kit for an E30.

Why are you trying to pull the wool over somebody's eyes?

Dinan used to make a turbo kit that was around 10,000$. The TCD kit has black painted pipes and a log type inefficient exhaust manifold...If you think 10,000$ is too much you might be right but point is that I'm selling the kit for 2,500$.

The TCD manifold is actually pretty decent, and if you think combining two stock log type manifolds with an adapter is better I think you're mistaken. The TCD manifold also has an external wastegate which gives more options for upgrading the turbo. Dinan has the luxury of being able to charge a premium for their products because they don't void the factory warranty.

The point is that you're trying to make your kit sound like an amazing deal for $2500 because you're saying that to buy something similar would cost $10,000 which just isn't true. I think that $2500 for this kit is a fair price, but not amazing.

The stock cast M20 manifolds actually flow really well. There were some discussions about this in other forums years ago.

Two things... stock manifolds w/ up pipes like the OP has is better then the TCD log manifold.

And Dinan parts DO void the factory warranty.

Is that ever since BMW Performance became more prominent? Because back in the day there were Dinan parts you could buy that would not void the warranty. I remember dealership techs telling me about getting trained by Dinan to install their stuff.

It's always been that way. Dinan offered their own warranty to cover anything that their parts would void.

Interesting. I guess they train dealership techs so you can get repairs done at a local dealership and they pay the dealership for the work.
