No idia, but seems like good prices, but if low quality china crap, its not helping... I have a few turbos that need rebuild, so its a good alternativ if good.

Never used cr and have heard both good and bad(normal :roll: ), but know of a "genuine garrett" from there, when broke down, he bought "identical" directly from garrett, and could see with eys that IT was diffrent...

I will try IT out and se. Going to run als on t34 so would be Nice if they lasted a few trips atleast each :twisted:

Have rebuild one now, and seems to be fine. Havent tested IT, but so far IT seems good. Only the oring for compressor housing i am not sure on... They do have a t34 ring on ebay, so have asked if they can add IT to webshop, since i couldnt find IT there.

I had same feeling .
But Harvey Gibbs setting mine up and said he used car turbo for 25 years

Harvey knew I was unsure of cr turbos and rung Vince there and expressed my issue .
Vince rung me back and he asked what I heard .
He left cr and company is smaller and less staff .

Had issue with motorsport developments with actuator but that's another story :-(
