What are you asking? Is it something you're looking to buy? Is it new or recently rebuilt?

You gotta look at the brand too. There are a lot of ebay turbos out there in the TD05 size.

All new it's a complet kit including front mount I'm wondering if its good or not. I currently have a stage 2 map on it the motor and heads are being redone with new internals. And I want to know if this is not a good turbo. On a tight budget and don't have much room to play with

Your buying a chinese knockoff turbo kit. If you really want to test them go for it, but I would personally go with a brand/turbo that is proven.

That's cheap and the price reflects it. I wouldn't go cheap on turbos you'll end up paying more in the long run and its not worth the headache or hassle. Plus the money and buy something reliable and proven. Its priced higher for those exact reasons.

Also depends on what your shooting for your car i would keep looking. I currently have a Tomioka 20g with a front mount and I have lots of turbo lag, but make up for it in the top end. If you stick with a smaller turbo you will have quicker response and hit full boost sooner, I don't hit it till around 3800rpms :-( but its amazing when it does :-) Blouch makes really good turbos I would check into them stick with the top mount for now unless you have an aftermarket like Process West

eh.... it inexpensive that's for sure but i would also save up for a better manifolds at least the rest is just piping and inter cooler which is fine remeber when the evo III gt turbos where under the magnifier and cause they only cost around $300 bucks new funny thing was they where actually made better then the original evo III turbos

in fact i was able to dig up the link i was thinking about

http://www.bblgroup.us/automotive/product/evo3gt/


so there is some good cheap products but do your home work first

"Sometimes it feels like/ somebody's watching meeee!"

I agree. VF34 is cute to boot. I do miss the TD04 sometimes.

This makes me want to further pursue an EJ20 swap in my BRZ...

Ugh! That car is so beast! Crawford is a very capable team of dudes. The thing is they're always popping something on their car. I can't afford that kind of maintenance. I'd basically want a lightly modified bugeye engine in mine. Reliable and making 230-250HP. I don't know if anyone's hooked up an EJ to this transmission yet. Element Automotive is definitely curious. Funds would have to increase and shop time would have to open up to make it happen. Motor swap is last on my list behind another $10k worth of parts to make the car look and feel awesome.

Edit: Just clarifying that my "popping something on their car" comment has come from what I've read after they do an event. I guess that's expected from an event and I should look at it differently since they do daily drive their BRZ and they love it.

^^ watched that the other day, badass build on Crawfords part. It's up for sale now on Ebay I heard. $60k


On topic, I would agree with these guys. Maybe buy a used TD05 if you want to save some coin. You can rebuild them for cheap too. For a front mount, cheap is fine as long as it doesn't leak.

You can get the best of both world on a big turbo by swaping the turbine wheel for a inconel wheel and getting a billet comprossor wheel with a billet CHRA. Doing so you increase spool and response since its lighter you can make even more power.

Thanks guys ya I'm still deciding on what to do to be honest I all ready have aftermarket full exh. It's just the turbo I'm concerned about is all. I all ready planed on getting a better one down the road but like I said just looking at getting it running again for school and work but it will still need to be tuned after all done and said that's why I lost the motor back in dec.
