Default anyone have any comments on this turbo?

Just doing some dumpster diving and came across this..

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/SPA-G...em320150704003

SPA GTS-63 turbo, seems to be similar of the GT2554 but at a ridiculous price for a knock off? i couldnt find anymore information on SPA aside from what was in the description. anyone have any info?



Hello btw, long time lurker just recently registered =)
