Used turbo/supercharger

Can anyone tell me some pros and cons to buying a used turbo/sc? Starting to grow real tired of na but i have other bills so a $10,000 is a little out of my league right now.

We'll assume a shop will be doing the work if you're asking such a question, they'll have all the details, living in certain states makes it harder or easier. Smog, c.a.r.b. cert, and so on

There's bigger costs with FI than you think. The VQ was designed as a NA engine and the added load from either a turbo or supercharger will put heat and stress on the shortblock that was never designed to handle it. Without rebuilding the shortblock, your VQ ie living on borrowed time, so buying a "used" turbo or supercharger is only the first gamble. How lucky do ya feel?
