Maybe the cheaper budget version of the turbo will cost that much, but Shiv is using the ball bearing version which lists for twice as much. I don't see him cutting corners on this kit. From what I've seen in Creaminz thread everything is fully legit and the performance of Shiv's car shows the value of doing things right. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=692883
