Well that turned out as expected. If betting on a fight between someone who is "Experianced" vs Super Human Admin Powers, always bet on the admin.

Id like to know please guys as above is nothing short of bullying!!!
discusted? what's that?



The guy got a perfectly valid answer 225 - 250wh/tq Unfortunately he was fixated on wanting an upper boost limit, that answer is unavailable as has been stated it really depends.

Unfortunately the poster couldn't get his head around that fact and threw his toys out.

He was a guest on the site and behaved badly, I think Brain was well within his rights to ban him.

Keep saying **** about me...

i answered the question. i pointed an error in fact (not theory). i wasn't being mean i wasn't being hostile.

i was, however, annoyed to answer the same question for the 158th time; limit is 225-250rwtq, which I answered.

i will continue to lol at people who use BHP. i will continue to lol at noobs who think 17psi = 17psi regardless of the volume flow. i will continue to be annoyed at new users that post in threads that have nothing to do with the subject matter on hand.

we should get some sort of "confirmed fits and doesnt suck" chinacharger list with applicable links. back in the day i did a bunch of searching to find this sort of info, but everything all consolidated in a thread/sticky would be nice for future reference.

My 2870 churbo is still good. I fairly happy with it. I was able to see most of the boost before 4k rpms.

Lol @ 1%

Why is the China a 2870? Does it use a 2871 housing?
Is the "2870" because the gap between the compressor tip and the housing is > 1mm?

I believe the one BEGi sells the compressor wheel was closer to 70mm, so that's probably where that came from.


I know the ebay one labeled as a 2860 is a 71mm compressor:






I chose mine very carefully, I have a t3 trim chinacharger and it was very difficult to find one that had a 60mm compressor wheel, most were 76mm or bigger.

I believe the pictures are the ones that Phil took when he ordered his turbo. The seller (Speedyracer) has the turbo listed as a 2870 despite the inducer being 71mm... just saying
