I was in Silverton this week running the Alpine Loop and ran into Jackson Racing Family off of corckscrew pass, they were unloading to do some testing at 12000 ft. They showed me everything about the turbo kit and I will say they have teamed up with the right ppl to build turbo and the parts I saw are primo!!! I’m def going to go ahead and get the turbo. Just FYI Oscar said they are making easy for DIY guys, the hardest part is taking off the stock stuff. He ran thru dismantle and install with me and if a guy is savvy as far as basic common sense turbo can be put on quite easily. Pretty excited.

THE DESIGN OF THE AIR FILTER IS BAD ,on the turbo from jackson racing . we have had to relocate the air filter because so much dust was getting into the turbo .so please check it out before installing the turbo , sucks a lot of dirt in because of the location of the filter by the right rear tire not a good place beware. but the car dose haul ass .

That filter setup is definitely Mickey Mouse. Why they didn't duct it up, and go with a real Donaldson is a mystery to me.

the only reason they didnt install a donaldson is the cover that goes over that area in the fender would have to be cut up... they want the kit plug and play as much as possible.

For the price of the kit they should include preconfigured panel(s), and a Donaldson, IMHO.
