messed with a couple over the years, I haven't had much luck with the hot sides, but I used the '57' compressor side with a genuwine stg2 hot side and it wasn't that bad. Other people have had worse luck and some people have had great luck, so I'd say YMMV. I chalk that up as "I don't have the money to do it right but I have the money to do it again".

besides, if you're spending the money to do everything else right, why cheap out on the part that really makes the package? best case scenario you don't get a junk turbo but it might not be sized for your application.. and it will suck. worst case scenario you end up with random turbo parts in the oil going through that new pump, etc.
