Default pretty sure i found the source to where 99% on chinachargers are from

i've been searching high and low here recently for a decent turbo to put on my 99 miata and needless to say i've numbed my mind looking at thousands of ebay adds and pictures.
now in doing this i've noticed in most of the pics of these turbos you'll see the letters "TBO" cast on the exhaust housing right above where the downpipe bolts on, sometimes you'll just see a shinny spot where they've ground it off. did a little searching and found this place

Considering you can't buy it from the website, I would say no....

Bro,
You better not be advertising on here without properly registering with the admin, because if you are I will hack your website and ruin your life. Seriously, bro.

How would he be advertising? That's kinda cool to know. At the very least a nice first post. Obviously he knows how to search.

If that was your third post, and you had an intro thread up... you'd be fairing much better...

The general mindset on here is: "1st post, no intro thread = troll/spammer/etc"
But since your 1st post isn't some stupid bullshit spam or retarded one worder, there's hope for you yet
Now go properly introduce yourself and you'll be surprised at how much nicer everyone will start treating you.

No ****. How else are we supposed to judge you? Your good looks? Your soft but pleasant scent? The way you do that 'thing' with your tongue that we like so much?

No. We're going to judge you on how you present yourself to this forum. i.e. - through your posts and the content therein.

I think I speak for most of the members of this forum when I say: I don't give a flying **** where it comes from, as long as it works. And they DO work.

Now, if you can find me someplace to buy them directly at wholesale prices with no quantity limit, then lets talk .

Only you can know that.

Edit: Enjoy your stay. Make an intro thread, ball hard. You don't seem like a dipshit, so you're like 90% ahead of most new members.

I judged you based on your pleasant scent and the way you do that thing with your tongue. It feels so good
