I haven't been able to figure it out either. But now that I know what kind it is, I need to start looking for a different turbo. Any turbo would be an upgrade at this point, but I think an sr20 t25 turbo is what im looking for.

Hm its the 14b style of compressor housing but says its a T25/28. Weird ebayness. If that ever ***** out this would be a nice upgrade that would last for more or less forever.

Is something wrong with it? There are plenty of people who run ebay turbos here. Some of them even perform on par or better than their true Garret counterparts.

I mean if you aren't happy with the spool (which I wouldn't be surprised by seeing some of the 2871 churbo dynos) that's one thing. But just because it's a knockoff doesn't mean you need to look for a replacement.

you'd be surprised at how long some ebay turbos last for.

most that are not pushed, and are from the handful of less-crappy vendors, actually hold up for dozens of thousdands of miles
