Check out the vids of Chinese turbos on youtube, lol. Some funny stuff (if it's not your car). Sometimes it costs a lot more to use them, lol. I work part time at a shop where most of what we do is turbo kits and such, we always warn people about those things because they are hit or miss. Some aren't bad at all, others are laughable build quality. Since there is no name brand, how do you know? The standard joke is "We'll see them in a few months for a real turbo." To be fair, none of the failures seen yet at the shop have damaged an engine.
