Looks like an OEM Triple K to me. They are used in all kinds of cars. Reliable as **** too.

I thought it looked like a china charger honestly. The fact that they cover the label in the pictures makes me suspicious. Also the clue is "These German Style units" real KKK turbos are made in Germany and are not "German Style" turbos. They are German turbos! Finally the lack of appropriate external markings is the last give away.

Yes its chinese-made. Apparently they're popular as OE replacement parts in China because there are lots of these cars (VW) there. Pretty well-made too, I would think.

But why would you want one on a Miata?
