I have bought turbo repair parts from this outfit on a couple occasions, and I have had very good luck. I hate it when someone has no experience with something but feel inclined to give advice. That said why risk it to save $150 over a reputable turbo vendor.

Got a nice low mileage Tdo5 16G if you can use something like that... It is from my ej20g so it has the 90 degree inlet compressor cover(changeable), but it is a bolt on turbo.

I just did another search on this forum for "Kamak"...apparently they're getting good reviews!

Because if they sell something on Ebay its bad.

If you look up their 16Gs and 18Gs, the compressor cover still has a Mitsu part # on it.
