Hey that looks like a decent unit. The blade shapes look good. I'll be watching too.
Ball bearing or journal?

you blow your motor because it had something to do with this turbo and you really think the sellers on egay are going to give a rats ***?

I had one of Emusa's turbos in my civic and ran it hard for 6 months and when I sold the car the turbo was in perfect shape just like the first day. Oil restrictors are the key for their survival.

Good on 'ya for pulling the trigger, I'll be eagerly awaiting your results. When does it go on?

Wow, that looks pretty good. Have you by any chance checked alignment with a manifold and/or DP? To see if bolt holes line up, and everything seems legit, and not done by a 12 year old in a sweat shop.
