if you are going to buy a budget turbo, at least get it from here and install it right away and try it.. so buy it last. I think it brings a 60 day warranty or something. These turbo seem to get a good reviews, I have one and came rebuilt and properly machined. I had it checked when I got it, but it did start eaking alot but after I pumped 100 psi of oil through it like a dumbass. Added a restrictor to it but havent tried it to see if its still ok

Here is the site
CXRacing
stuff is shipped fast and well packed, I bought a few things from there

Most of the turbos on cx are rebuilt oem turbos. All I am saying if that if your are looking for turbos on ebay due to cost, cx its probably the best option. If I didnt have to spend so much to finish my car to make it track ready I will buy a precision but cant afford it

i do not agree. most are new turbos made in china.

didnt we have a post about this before? And come out to say that with ebay turbos the seal materials is a little cheap which is why they leak under high oil psi. Also the shaft sometimes aren't balance which means at high boost levels they spin to fast causing them to walk and eat them-self.

and whats the numbers for that setup cannonball?
I think I was at something like 237 at 9 or 10 psi...Was a pretty conservative build...That was one of 3 cars that I have had morris from midnight auto tune...They do some really kick ass tunes...It was my DD at the time so I didnt want to throw a rod or blow a gasket anytime soon...probably could have gone much higher...

So what does your whole build have to do with his question about what turbo to use anyways?

All that for 237HP? What a waste! Reliability shouldn't be a problem with a proper tune.
