Found a few 20G kinugawa turbos pop up on ebay lately for as low as 750 shipped.

Does anyone know what EWG internal wastegate bracket would work with this turbo?

Please mind ur own business. I did not ask if the turbo was good or if it was worth buying. I just wanted to know if he is still using it and how it is holding up. Stop trolling on my posts.

Trolling youre posts??? Ive never even seen you post here before, guy! You asked a question on a Internet forum, ANYONE can answer youre question. I did, because its HIGHLY unlikely for that member to reply to a nearly 2yr old post! By someone who hasnt even logged into this site in almost exactly 1yr! Try messaging him next time. That would probably net you an answer, if he was still active!..... newbs

I probably will troll youre posts from here out, just because you accused me of doing so after 1 reply.

I for one like to see the updates on stuff like this- major components that could take your motor out if they fail but are priced to tempt you anyway. My VF39 has some play but is still boosting....

You didn't ask if the turbo was good or worth buying? Your next sentence is "I just wanted to know if he is still using it and how it is holding up." THAT'S ASKING IF THE TURBO WAS GOOD!

I dont get every ones concern with my posts when it has nothing to do with them, now I got ppl trying to tell me what I am saying when I post things in this tread. Yes this is a old possibly dead thread, but y does it matter if I post in it? This forum is super huge so stop worrying about trolling my posts. I havent even broke a 100 posts yet and u two guys are so worried about me..

The honest sad truth is that somebody is going to respond to this very post with a smart un important comment, and the moderators arent gonna do nothing to get them off my back. I am a new member trying to figure things out, and its nice to see how this forum members treat new members, or scoby newbies, or newbs, or n00bs or how ever clever way u guys can conjure up...

And if the OP or Jason doesnt answer thats fine, so be it, wont bother me, ill just move on

back on topic, this really seems to be a great Turbo the Kinagawas by Zage turbo Systems, check this out.

They also make the GTSpec/MadDad/Tomei headers.

This Kinagawa 18G-XTR like turbo is tempting !

Wow, I just read 22 pages of eBay turbo reviews where the main question is reliability just to get to the last page and see an argument about the question of whether or not a turbo lasted for a year? Could've been an informative search......would've been without someone crying that it was "resurrected". jeez.....

Its so cheap and easy to rebuild one of those $200 I dont know why you wouldn't do it. From what I've seen the journal bearing Garrett ones are just as reliable as normal Garrett turbos but make less power. While the mitsu ones make the same power but should get rebuilt and balanced before being installed. You save a whole ton of money. If that is too hard for you though, the kinugawa turbos are pretty damn cheap as well, and are really a blouch competitor. Steam Speed has a nasico sale for them right now.
