Default Kamak Turbos?

Anyone heard of them or used their turbos?

I have never seen that brand of turbos before, but at least they do look to have Subaru specific turbos meaning it at least has the correct flange.

All their turbos look to use journal bearings. Isn't that old technology?

Subaru TD06SL2-25T + 3" Cover Turbocharger
Subaru TD06H-25G + 3" Cover Turbocharger

I'd be curious to see what kind of power either one of those could put down, but also what kind of lag they would have as they sound like they would be huge turbos.

They are an eBay company, but their prices match those of reputable turbo makers. Why not just go with something of known quality instead?

You found a wholesaler. They sell turbos to businesses and NOT to the public so no one here has experience with them nor will any of us ever as we cannot buy from them. It's nice to find new and exciting things, but this is of no use to us, sorry.

I've seen them for sale. Never tried one but they look ok.

Despite what people on here would have you believe, most of the subaru 16/18/20G turbos sold either on ebay or known brand name are made in china. Very few of them go bad.

At the time when he posted there was no experience with this. Now there is, that's all.
