Universal turbo kit

I was bored on ebay and came across some universal turbo kits that will supposedly fit a 2009 328i. I know alot of custom work would need to be done if its even possible. Is it possible to put one of these on? if so how much roughly would it cost (1-2k)?

It would cost a lot less to trade in your car and get a 335. Plus it is reliable and under warrenty. Don't even think about ebay universal turbo upgrades.

Got some cruel people on this forum. I agree with what they are saying though, it just isn't smart to buy a turbo kit from ebay. You don't know what your getting and I doubt it is fully compatible or safe for the N52 engine.

I will say this, If I had the money and lived in Atlanta, GA I would go to this shop called Madhavi Motorsports (mahdavimotorsports.com) and get them to install a turbo or maybe a supercharger kit. They install turbo kits and are legit.

Then again, if I had the money I would buy a 335i or an M3.
