Default BEWARE of imitation IHI turbos!

As a service announcement to the i-Club community, please check this out. IHI sales are being threatened by the proliferation of Taiwan made IHI imitation turbos. At my sales training, I was made aware of this and I am not surprised if some of these turbos have made their way to US shores.

For those of you who have moved on to Garretts, I'm afraid they have a bunch of Garrett imitation too. When I find my copy of the Garrett announcement brochure, I'll put it here.

Please check out exclusive photos of my visit to the Biggest IHI, MHI, Garrett and KKK Turbo stockist in Asia. You gotta love that gold plated compressor wheel gift from IHI. It is so cool

Great pictures as usual! I just wish that they were labelled so I knew what I was looking at. I like the workbench picture the best. My second fave is the "turbo shrine" with all of the different turbos on display.

You can always ask me ! I hope to have that address when my website officially debuts. Take this photo for instance, it's the TD05H, same model that's fitted to the EVO 7 with titanium shaft. The neighbouring photos to this one are close ups of the compressor wheel with titanium shaft. I'm told the titanium version costs nearly double that of the standard TD05.

That picture caught my eye. I didn't know that dual internal wastegates existed.

I really gotta find the Garrett one. It'll shock you how real they look.
