Default Chinese VF48 CHRA with billet compressor wheel balancing chart

Hi there, I purchased a CHRA from Aliexpress and had a billet compressor wheel added to the mix.

I had asked the Aliexpress seller if the rotating assembly will be balanced.

Surprisingly well built, it also came with a balancing chart but I don't really know how to interpret it

Another surprise is that is also comes from UK ! (wondering if all this is legit, but anyways ...)

Anyone can tell me if i's good or not ?

I wish someone with the technical know how could say how good these turbos are, I believe that oem or aftermarket are more reliable and possibly better find design but knock offs and replicas from China get better and better with 3d scanning and cheaper machines.

I always fear lack of reliability, Iíve seen people talk highly about Melett chra assemblies but Iíve never seen a long term review. Please keep the thread updated, perhaps every 25,000 miles.
Thank you.

When do either of you guys think you will have this installed? I think at some point the design becomes all the same, the material might not be oem, but that's not the end of the world.

Looking forward to the results that you two come up with - I would like to know how installation and dyno'ing goes

This is probably one of the most highly stressed and single fastest moving part of the car though, that fails even at the OEM level. So the point where it becomes all the same is a bit high.

Interested in how these perform and wear, it's nice to have options as OE parts for these are not common IIRC.

I am waiting to see one of these guys install it and put it on a dyno/butt-dyno and see how it does. Then see how it is in like 3 months.

I'm pretty sure the final dynamic balance is usually completed by machining the 12 pt nut once installed.
