Question why are these turbos soo cheap?

http://www.modacar.com/products/Subaru/Impreza/MODAFOIN

i am looking to upgrade the turbo on my sti and ran across these, they seem to be 300 or so cheaper than everywhere else, am i missing something.

thinking about the gt30 or maybe the 35.

i already got tbe, 255lph pump, 850cc injectors, ap with street tuner on the way.

i also have the inen full lenght intake, ill have to ditch that right?

Maybe I misread the original post, but it looks like he already has the fuel pump.

Avo also make great bolt on turbos .... kinda pricey tho...

FWIW ...i think you should do some research before you make a decision on what turbo you are going to upgrade to.

good luck

I feel that Deadbolt offers the best Bolt on Style Turbos for our cars...hands down best customer service and full respect for each customer no matter how big or small the sale.

If I remember correctly, the GT30 and GT35 have 3" intake housings, and the stock intake housing is 2.4." That three inch housing is going to be a bitch to fit in the stock location, and you will probably need a custom Up and Down Pipe. Furthermore, I dont think the stock intercooler would be sufficient for those turbos, not to mention that the lag on the GT35 is gonna be really annoying.

Im sure you have heard the term "you get what you pay for."

I have heard awesome things about the FP Green and with your configuration im sure it will make you smile.

GT35R has a 4" inlet. I thought the GT30R did as well. And people who complain about Lag without ever having ridden in a car with the turbo should please stop. There's negligible lag with a GT35R. Boost comes on at full tilt at around 3900RPM. If you're above that and you nail it, full boost comes almost instantly. I've seen it with my own two eyes.

Not only that, but you're STILL making more power everywhere except 3000-3600RPM than a stock turbo. Sure it seems peaky, that's just because it's making ridiculous power somewhere.

ok cool, thanks for the correction. =) And you make a good point about the overall power being higher than stock across the board....im just picky about linear power...to each his own.
