Re: Is this turbo set-up junk??

Looks to be China stuff mate. Some things are mostly AOK to use (like intercoolers etc), but be wary of turbos. They are typically unbalanced, poorly machined, and can create a disaster. I do however know of guys who have purchased them, sent them directly to a turbo rebuilder and had them balanced etc, and they've beeen ok.

Re: Is this turbo set-up junk??

Yeah the piping,flanges,intercooler,etc look OK,not great but ok. I'd be wary of the turbo itself. Perhaps they'd sell you the kit,minus the turbo,then go grab a MasterPower turbo,if you're on a budget. Or a nice Turbonetics if you're not,lol.

What tips me off about the turbo itself,it says 50-100 hp at 8 psi,and 485 at 25 psi. That tells me that it's very inefficient,especially at higher boost levels and looking at the ar ratios makes me think it's possibly a small take off turbo from a 4 cyl car.

Re: Is this turbo set-up junk??

When it comes to your engine and putting a mod on it thats supposed to get you high horse power and be reliable i would not cheap out. Spend the money for decent non china quality parts.

Re: Is this turbo set-up junk??

Bubba.... just so you know, I run China front mount intercooler and aluminium pipework on my race car, which has to run for 6 days absolutely flat out. I've tested it for flow and cooling ability and it's fine. The China parts that concern me are the parts with moving parts, like turbos. remember turbos can spin at upwards of 200,000rpm, so they gotta be good parts, and balanced!

I can say 13.5 and 13.6 although my 5.7 can't beat it, a SRT8 will.
