You'll end up with poor quality parts that won't work anyways. "Universal" kits are garbage and you won't be able to tune your car plus you'll have the added bonus of destroying it's warranty and probably it's engine all in one fell swoop.

I wonder if HPS is supposed to stand for horsepowers...
Why would a JDM product appeal on a german car anyways (besides wheels)?

Thats just some cheap quality kit, no name turbos.
does anyone make an exhaust manifold for single big turbo? I would be interested.
It would be nice to know if electronics were there to support those kind of mods or are they?

Good find though

It's poor quality materials. It's not worth my warranty. Maybe if a reputable company like Dinan produced an aftermarket n52 turbo kit I would consider it.

Ebay turbos are shit unless a seller is selling a name brand turbo.... This kit would be a disaster and would most likely have the turbos blow within 5k miles, sending metal through your engine causing catastrophic failure. Not fun

I don't think there are any "kits" out there. you will need to go full custom. You might be able to fit the mainfolds/turbos off a 335 on your car though, if that's the case, that would be a place to start.

but the cost of doing this the right way is probably going to be more than just trading your car in for a 335i.

although it may fit and work, the one thing it's missing is the mapping of the ecu.

Horsepower Freaks developed a turbo kit and everything looked top notch, however they ecu kept giving errors and they couldn't come up with a workaround. They eventually put it on the back burner.

aftermarket turbo kits are all about the quality of the tune, not the parts.

That said the best turbo kit for 325/328/330 is called '335'. don't bother to modify when the factory solution is available.
