so all said my question does all the fancy names make a difference or is a turbo a turbo?
hope this makes sense.
usually the price differences are just like anything else. the higher priced ones use better and more durable parts, and the cheaper priced ones use less durable and cheaper chinese parts. sometimes the cheaper ones last, but most the time they don't. some of the really expensive turbos are just expensive because of who the company is that is selling it. basically, you are paying for the name. kinda like buying cosworth parts...
