Question found a turbo kit, should I pick it up??

I just found a turbo kit and was wondering if I should buy it. It comes with a t3/t4 turbo, a manifold for the 2.4 chrysler engine, the manifold is also in the shape of an aftermarket header and it also has a downpipe, intercooler piping, and an intercooler. only problem is no fuel regulator, no injectors, and no boost controler. any ideas?? where should I go to get these parts if I do buy it. the kit was originally made for a neon 03 but same thing, right?? please feedback would be greatly appreciated

Your best bet is to ask on PTCrew.com - there are turbo gurus there.
I do know the intake for the Neon is different.

it doesn't have the intake, it's just the intercooler piping to the intake, and the turbo doesn't have a filter either

haha, thanks. I was actually thinking of buying the upgraded kit of that but if I got a shell cruiser I would go that route, this other one is a little cheaper and it doesn't have ALL of that stuff but some of it

Imho ebay turbo = no deal... There is soooooo much more to a turbo car than just the turbo, mani, and intercooler.

Gotta control boost, timing, fuel etc. Then you have to build the extended drive train to handle the power (axels, tranny, etc)

Unless you have ALOT of free time, money, and patience just buy a turbo

Fast-cheap-reliable... You can only choose two

well you replied to my reply on that other turbo kit. and the one I am talking about in THIS thread is one I found localy. it needs a whole lot more to get it running, whereas the one that I found on ebay has everything except injectors. I know there's much more to a boosted car than just the manifold, the turbo, and intercooler. my camaro is going to get a supercharger and I've already riped apart the axle, replaced the driveshaft. and the tranny is getting trashed in favor for a t56, I know superchargers just not good with turbos. i asked about this other kit because I found a pt shell that I might pick up but instead of supercharged I want to go turbocharged in it
