If you read all of this thread or the other Kinugawa threads on here..... you would have found that these are infact the housings that FP uses. They buy the parts to build their turbos from over seas and assemble them here. Kamak makes these parts, Kamak no longer sells complete turbos directly to the public. So other companies buy the turbos and parts from Kamak with no name stamped on them, and then brand name the turbo how ever they want with whatever they choose. Some use the complete Kamak turbo with their own name on it or some choose to use just the housings and make their own cartridge or change wheels of the cartridge. Catching on?

So yes, believe it or not people...... most turbo parts come from one place. Ever wonder why Kamak and Kinugawa both sell Genuine Mitsubishi, Garrett, IHI, Toyota, KKK brand name turbos? well do some research, all the parts for those turbos come from 1 place in Taiwan, and guess who makes those!? The quality of these is top notch, you ARE in FACT getting a turbo or parts from the same facility as the big names!

Few hours of research on the interwebzs and you will be able to verify this info. Buy a kinugawa turbo and want replacement parts? does Kamak sell the same version turbo? Just CALL Kamak turbo at the So Cal warehouse and get the parts you need!!

I could be wrong about Kamak being the actual manufacture/foundry for turbos, but from there bio and company directory it seems they are! If they are not, then its another company with a different name which none of us will actually ever know. But we do know that they come from the same factory!
