Style: Forum Default 140 GT, I'm not trying to bust your balls, but if somebody asks you what's wrong with the kit, shouldn't you at least tell them about a few problems they might run into?

Fuel injector holder was drilled to deep causing me to leak fuel....

Oil line was way to short....

Turbo came with no E-clip to hold the wastgasket in place....

Air intake flange was fooked up and does not align with my turbo...

The down pipe requires welding and it dont match the stock downpipe...

Clamps where missing...

Silicone coupler that goes from the turbo was not even in the kit...

Dongle for the maf sensor was poorly welded and there was extra metal sticking out so it fooked up my maf sensor costing me 160.00$ for a new maff i had to dremale the extra sheet out.....

Turbo kit came with .1% worth of instructions...

Turbo kit was missing alot of crap, i was getting shiiit in the mail from ATR and it was missing parts i didnt even know i was missing....

Air intake heat deflecter was cheap metal as thick as a soda can...

They sent me a faulty turbo in the mail...

I had to cancel installation dates and pay the installer money because they didnt supply with the proper things needed.....

This is not a bolt on kit what so ever....

Turbo came with 0% worth of support.....

Its not emotart's kit. It belonged to some guy in Arizona, I believe his screen name is se186us or something like that. emotart tried to actually turn his ATR kit into whatever he has on his car now, which was obviously a mistake.

Just for referance if anyone wants to say they sold it it was sold to a guy with a Matrix in Katy,Texas...(no bad feeling going on here,he's gonna install it-just wanna be sure the turbo was rebuilt)

i thought it belonged to q8eboy. He never rebuilt the turbo, its why he sold it because it was giving too many issues.

i'll try to search and see if i can find the original owners name.

It wasnt his. It was some guy with a yellow celica and blk graphics on it. He sold it to 140gt with the turbo ****ed, 140gt had it rebuilt by a shop, he didnt do it himself...

I am VERY hesitant to have anything at all to do with the ATR kits - they are crap plain and simple.

I also don't really care to deal with an e-manage blue either, especially not for a turbo setup. Hew ought to hold off and save up for a Hydra or Power FC

I remember when 140 bought the kit. And i remember it sitting around, and then he finally sold it not too long ago.

if it is someone different selling it, thats just a strange coincidence.

That's right. Keep in mind this was a long time ago and I was pulling screen names from memory.

Stick to your guns. I wouldn't want to get involved in crap setups either.
