i know a few guys running chinachargers and they hold up well, one is pushing 22-24 out of one the other is running 16. for that price you really cant beat it.

I'll second the fact that they look great upon inspection. Mine goes in this saturday and I'll have logs and pictures to accompany it.

I think BEGI experienced some boost creep issues that required a garret part. You might want to keep an eye on that.

hey guys sorry for the delay. Just got the turbo on the car and tuned it with tuner studio. Turbo fit great and produced good power. I need to get rid of my current cat eliminator(1 7/8 inch pipe). Totally slowings down my spool and boost. I have a 3 inch dp and a 2.5 inch cat back, whoops. haha. Next on the list is a better flowing intercooler off ebay and new piping. This should make my car complete.... well maybe for a day or 2!

Nice... The only thing stopping me is the lack of ball-bearing CHRA's. Will need the added spool when coming out of the corners. :(

If you could, post up some pictures. I'm probably going to order one within the next week or two.

1990mbt- are you runnin any form of oil restrictor on this turbo?. I was running a -4an line on mine and it started smoking, possibly due to over oiling.

Same here, I'm going to be putting a restrictor in this weekend to see if it stops.

I'll be running a -3 AN line so I"m hoping I won't need a restrictor. If I do, thenI am going to get this:
