Default New 16g turbo cheap thoughts?!? Help!?

So I am looking to jump to a 16g turbo and while I was looking around at prices I ran across what seems to be a killer deal..
Has anyone purchased/used one of these.
I read some good things but, i would like SOLID FACTS WITH FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE if you have had one

I ran a Blouch 16g on my 02 wagon for 3 years till it finally blew oil through the hot side. Was putting down 310whp and 301 tq at 20-21psi. IMO its a great turbo for a DD and spools near the TD04.

Im actual y looking to sell it for cheap, Blouch said it would be a $300-400 to rebuild it. PM me if your interested.

Currently a Blouch 16gxt is $1000
