Default This is a ebay T3 50 trim, right?

For a background, I have a 1.6, tacotaco cast manifold, and aiming for a very streetable 200rwhp. I'm pretty new to turbos, but I've been reading a lot as to not sound like a complete idiot.

It seems like the cheap 50 trim T3 chinacharger is pretty decent turbo for the 1.6. I'm pretty sure this is the/a turbo Braineack uses, as well as the turbo this guy eventually switched to from a T3/T4 hybrid (can't remember his forum name here...)

Anyway, in searching I found this quote. Wondering if this is a rounding error, or if the turbos just change slightly over time? This is the turbo I am looking at, Comp 43.20 / 60.41 - Turbine 45.74 / 62.86. If my math is any good, that is something like .51 trim on the turbine, and .52 on the compressor.

What I was looking for...

turbine: 48.7mm exducer and 59mm inducer.
My math puts that at .49/.50? Surly both these turbos (the ebay one linked, and the "ebay 50 trim" Braineack references) would preform about the same? Are they the same thing?

Thanks for looking!

Intriguing thread.

1) Well done. Research plus competent use of words/keyboard.

2) What purpose does the bungee cord in the picture serve?
