Uh yeah, no ****. The difference is minimal. Use your brain, dude. I said I ran T25G, I drove a china T25, I noticed the difference. Much different then between my T25g and the gt2554.

Contribute to the thread with something useful.

Precisely. It's nominal.

And you should use you brain and reread your own post. You directly compared the china charger to your gt2554

Yeah just like you are right now by flaming? And just viper was by his (unwarranted unprovoked) flame? Pot meet kettle much?

As for the sr turbos..some where infact bb units. They are identical and carry the same Garret pn sold today. If you are lucky/crafty they are only a few bucks more

Contributing: I personally would run a Garrett turbo if you plan to beat on it. China jobs are okay for the average ricer who do highway pulls 3 times a week but the stress of autox will tear one of those apart. I'm going to be running a Garrett T25 for this exact reason.

I'm not gonna fight with you but I just wanted to pop in and shut you up before one of the senior members bent you over.

Agreed. Not only that but a used Garret can be rebuilt. FYI brand new Nissan branded 2560s (with inconel turbine)can be had for $700 and will outlast 2 or 3 china chargers. Do it right or do it twice. Let me see if I can dig up the 2554 equivalent

There's a guy on my local car forum (tallyimports.com) selling 3 garrett T25 turbos, 2 are the normal ones and 1 has a smaller hotside turbine for faster spool. They all have minimal shaft play (checked by me) and he wants $120 a piece for them

Nope! Your car looks very tastefully modded...tasteful isn't in the vocab of a ricer
