Please don't use that garbage. This is one thing you don't skimp on. Intercooler, sure, buy a cheesy one. Not a turbo though. These things spin at 100,000 rpm and need to be perfectly balanced. Otherwise you end up with a compressor wheel that can scrape the inlet, and there you go ingesting cast aluminum particles into your motor.

Actually my godspeed china turbocharger did fantastic. Few years later and it's still working like a champ for the current owner. Now my kraftwerks rotrex spins at around 250,000rpm...

I just can't see risking a motor because somebody couldn't pony up another $500 for a turbocharger with proven performance, longevity, and support. Though, I am glad to hear that it has served you well. Sweet Fit BTW. I've contemplated a boosted Fit many times. Honda should've just made a Fit Si w/ the K20 in it :0)
