I know it has been beaten to death a million times but after tonight im blown away! Went out to a meet with a few buddies who brought some new 240's and lemme tell ya. EBAY is taking over around here!!!
One guy running a t3/t0e4 what ever TURBOCHARGER on the compressor housing seen em before. Runs GREAT like hella good been good for 2 yrs since he bought it. No idea if rebuilt i checked end play no housing contact probly around a mm LOL but no smoke 2yrs.........forged pistons in it pushing 400 he says" doubtful....maybe 250 but its fast on the interstate! Treadstone cast manifold no cracks!
Another guy there had a g35 knock off ebay bolted to his sr with a ebay manifold. Ran it for a bit blew it....rebuild it himself (this guy probly doesnt know what a turbo even does KEEP IN MIND) Said he slapped it back together been runnin for few months not a issue again runs pretty good holdin its own with stocker t25 sr's.
I read WD's comments on a 07 thread that low boost fine if you run then anticipate the rebuild. So ebay rebuild kit too!!!! Im just blown away my buddy has gone thru 3 sr turbos trying to find a good one yet EBAY for real.
anyways im not one to risk an engine on ebay but im in at this point
