Default Looking for source for good T3/T4 Turbo

Hey,

I'm building a Turbo kit for my Acura TSX with a K24 (2.4 litre engine).

I'm trying to find a decent source for a T3/T4 Turbo and it has been a very long time since I purchased one. I'm quite happy to buy a Chinacharger but I don't know which sources are good vs the not so good ones.

Anyone care to offer any suggestions based on their experience?

Thanks, Marc

The one I got from CXRacing worked out very well. My suggestion to you though is to hop over to their ebay store cxmotorsports because you can get them for cheaper than they sell them on their website.

Marc,

What exactly is a T3/T4 turbo? I have a PTE "CEA" (billet) turbo 5857 which should spool awesome with that big of a motor and will support 600+ whp if you're interested. It is a T3 housing .63 A/R

A T3/T4 is a T3 turbine and a T4 compressor; it is pretty vague since both T3 and T4s have different variants.

Ive bought both my turbo and intercooler from "speedyracer" off of ebay. Shipped fast and both as shown on there.

I will probably also get a cheap wastegate from them.

TBO marked ones are the ones Begi and most others sell. It's cast in the comp housing. Apparently they are the biggest turbo "OEM" in China.
