Default Opinions / advice on this china charger, finally ready get my shiz fixed!

I decided on the ride into work today that I need to fix my damn car already. I know there are a **** ton of threads about chinachargers and such, but I just wanted to get a census on this one. Although i dont really know **** about turbo sizing and specs, I think the .86 A/R exhaust wheel may be too large....I'm not too concerned with making the most power, I just want something snappy lol. Any input, concerns, advise.

All the flange bolt patterns would be the same right....if its handy, could you snap a pic?

On another note, hows the new ride, braap braap braap!


**EDIT**
Just saw the link...not sure I wanna deal with changing flanges and **** to make that one work. It'd probably be easier to buy one that will bolt right in....that sucks, I thought you were going to be able to save me a few $$

Tis the season for giving.....give me your thoughts guys! Looking at these two this morning, I'm thinking the second one I linked may be the better of the two even though its pricier.

The one miatamike posted looks good too though....I'm too damn indecisive
