If you want something similar to a 2554 in a t3, there are better options out there. Like this:


This is the turbo in Brain's thread posted above.
Sorry to thread jack but

These turbos are a shot in the dark but have been getting better from what there were a few years ago. When i got my 13b miata it had a china turbo but when i took it apart i found Garrett stampings on the chra and wheels so i do question some of these turbos and the truth behind them. and when i search the number on the turbo TB73 i find this.
