IDK what the big deal is alot of turbos are forsale on ebay. Have you looked at the kPa Turbo. Its not a chinese turbo. My buddy compared it with his PTE and claims they have identicle housings and some other parts. However he claims the castings was better on the kPa. He also said the kPa seems to spin with less resistance.

You've posted almost identical posts at a **** ton of forums I post at. Astroturfing at it's finest.

Can a mod please restore his original post, and make it so he can't edit it?

I'm referring other forums where he's spammed with this post to here, and it's hard when he's trying to play shennanigans with his post here.

@OP: You obviously have some connection to kPa. The price is amazing for what you claim to get, but please. Pitch your product based on the strength of the product, not on some astroturfing BS. If you would not have astoturfed this, I might have been willing to give it a shot with the right warranty coverage. (Edit) Hell, I still might be willing to give it a shot with the right coverage.

I'm sure your boyfriend is an engineer with a long background in turbocharger development and technology.

The image I get is some bro looking at both turbos side by side (with housings on) and commenting about the quality.
