Default ebay turbo comparison

Are these two turbos similar?

I have a 1.6L, trying to push 10 PSI to make 160-180HP. Which turbo do you guys think will do the job?

Is it that hard to compare both of the specs; then compare them to a Garrett and see what you're looking at? Did you even bother to search anything, at all?

If you buy the second one, you will not find a flange to fit the outlet. So it won't be doing much job, if any.

They both measure out as 2560s with .49 a/r turbine housings. You should make your stated goal with either one. They will spool early and will pull well in the low to midrange but will fall off before you approach redline.

Edit: I wasn't looking for what Brain saw, so I missed it completely. That's why he's the Brain.

maybe I should say: you will not find a manifold/DP made with the flange on it OTS.
