Not that I'm advocating one way or the other... But the US distribution arm of Kinugawa is in SoCal as is their phone # which is US based.
MAP's turbo had to be made in roughly the same geographic region as the others, and offers just a 30day return policy. And they too sell questionable quality brands of turbos too like tomioka racing, etc...
That said, I'm happy with my blouch turbo
