Since GT-series turbos can't be rebuilt without precision tools that very few shops have, and Garrett themselves won't even rebuild them, the fact that it's being advertised as a "rebuilt GT2871R" is a huge red flag.

The one I found was from a private seller but selling one of these


Its by twistedmotion. I've never heard of it. I'm mostly just curious if it would fit. If not his, then perhaps a new one from the company.
