Default Buying Tial goods!

where have some of you bought your Tial products!

i want to buy the Tial V-Band housing and the Tial MVS 38mm wastegate, and have been searching around online for them and dont want to over pay for them!

right now ebay has both the turbine housing and MVS EWG, the housing is $399 and i think the EWG was around $250! i worry about buying them from ebay because of the fact that im worried i wont get the v-band flanges and what not that i need!

amazon had the housing for about $360 but i didnt check on the WG!

where are the good deals at people?

Watch out for knock-offs. If you go to Tial's website they have a whole page deticated to how to spot the fakes.....some of them look ****** GOOD!

$360 and $250 are probably as good as you're going to get for the housing & WG respectively. That stuff does not come up used very often and even then it fetches near-new prices since it's current baller ****. And Tial certainly has minimum advertised prices for their dealers. I did get a bit of a discount through Tim because he is a dealer and is sculpting a bunch of stainless steel for me, though I think for accounting purposes the discount was applied to his services rather than the Tial parts themselves.

Anyway, start scouring classifieds hoping to find gently used parts, or call/email dealers to see if you can get multi-item discounts. I googled around for weeks and didn't have any magic deals fall in my lap for this stuff. Good **** costs money. baller.gif

Lemme see what I can do. Remember that the WG comes with clamps and flanges, but the turbine housing does not.
