Default Turbo Differences?

http://www.frsport.com/Garrett%20GT2...ger_c_234.html

After contacting previous purchasers of the China charger its worth the extra money to get a real Garrett. Whats the difference between these two turbos? And is it worth it?

(Ni-resist)

" Identical to GT2560R-466541-4 except for "Ni-Resist" turbine outlet with cast divider and inconel turbine wheel for extreme applications. This is OEM Nissan S15 SR20DET Turbocharger." on the 845 dollar one is the only listed difference besides one p/n ending in 1 and the other p/n ending in 4.

I found that Ni-resist iron is "cast iron consisting of graphite in a matrix of austenite"

If it is true Ni-resist, in a true austenite form, that'd be a pretty nice turbine housing.

Probably not. It'll resist surface rusting/discoloration much better, and is probably a bit lighter as well. But the regular turbine housing will work fine.
