I've seen this link thrown around again and again. I haven't heard anything bad about them. Looks like good pricing to me.

you might search around on the honda tech forums... there seems to be a "few" more people over there. I have never owned a honda but still use their forums for company/product reviews.

search them at homemadeturbo.com - the word lately is lack of communication and extremely long delays in delivering product

If I was going to recommend any vendor for Turbos, it'd be Turbochargers.com in Houston.

Limit Engineering came highly recommended- not a very adnvanced online presence. But they do respond to email and answer the phone- and know turbos.
