Exhaust leaks suck. I have had my share.

More problems...

I'm misfiring BADLY. Literally if I even get on the throttle moderately it completely misses and almost stalls. I can't even build past like 1.5 psi of boost (even if I accelerate slowly...). Gas quality wasn't the problem so hopefully it's something plug related. The plugs are less than 10k miles old so I can't imagine they would already be fouled. No diagnostic codes either.

Went to go work on the exhaust leak today. In the process I immediately noticed the actuator had no spring pressure. As soon as I started toying with it, the rod fell right out of the actuator. Unbelievable... I can't figure out how to get it back in (if even possible) so it looks like I'll be buying a new one. The best part is that Zage torqued the actuator bracket bolts so hard that I broke the heads off of BOTH of them trying to get them out.

Sounds like the Zage kit is adding up to be a "get what'cha pay for" kind of kit after a few thousand miles have been put on it. Unfortunate.

^ With a warranty. Interesting that no one asks.

Oh well that changes my view a bit. But there has been quite a few issues.

Garm, we're you still putting together your own kit?

The kit is cheaply made. You do get what you pay for. But if your looking for an enexpensive way for a little fun it's about the only way to go out of the box. Good luck on a warranty.


There is a new kit in the works with a Precision Turbo and a Haltech Sprint 500 with plug and play harness on its way out. And it's even coming with a tune already built in!

Yeah I'm definitely a little disappointed but it isn't THAT big of a problem. Given all the little problems over the last year it's clear that this isn't the best kit, but the price is completely fair.

Garm - I didn't buy the kit from you lol. Even if Zage does have a warranty, I don't have the time to wait on shipping from Indonesia.

Thanks Aras/xbgod, but I really do have warranty turbos on the shelf for my customers. It's how we roll at Micro Image.

@ focus, I can probably do a warranty anyway, and deal with Zage directly for you.

Its great you warranty the Turbo for them, I would too as long as it was manufacture related. However I wouldn't, Sell a kit that anyone can call and get direct from Zage for 1,100.00. And 200.00 for freight direct from them. They cut their dealers right out. Just go to alibaba.com they sell right there to anyone. Even that light weight pulley your selling you can buy it from there to for 20-25 dollars depending on which Chineese manufacture you want to buy from.

^ And get no service and no warranty. That would be a stupid choice as a customer.

I guess we'll see about that, Aras. I hope so.

Incorrect. Mine is 100% designed and made in the USA.

Had to drill the bolts out. I tried to tap the holes and failed... I guess I should get a competent mechanic to do it for me? Otherwise new actuator is on the way. I'm just wondering how long that previous actuator has been screwing my boost...

^ I would with any part that matters. You're more mechanical than I am, but tapping should be done right, I think.

Alright everything's back to normal. I definitely hope this is the last time I say this but - I'm going to try and get the ignition tuned and up on the dyno to find the remaining leak(s).
