Aren't the XS Power turbo compressor housings know to just fall apart

i might get it if i can get it for about 50quid, just as a starter turbo, and to get the system running as a test, then once i kno a bit more about turbos and set ups, get myself a real1,

so thanks, wont be parting with a large ammount of money :)

why waste your money at all? its junk it will fail and you will have to go through the trouble of replacing it. Not to mention who knows how the fitment is.. if you take anything the jpipe would be good (maybe as long as it in not for a rwd car) spend the money on a t28 or somehting else

im not denying what you guys say, but why do all these turbos i find like this XS powered ones all say capable of 500bhp and loads of specs, is it just talk and they really just fall apart?

is it a case of buy cheap buy twice :)?

buy cheap buy twice and fix all the stuff that blows up with it :) save your money for later on down the road. And the turbo may be able to blow enough air for 500hp, but for how long? My bet is you make 2 runs at 500 then the dang bearings in the thing seze up or you end up with so much shaft play that the blades get chewed up on the housing. Remember you get what you pay for.

brand new t28 is between 800 and 1200 depending on options that you can get. I'm sure you can find a new one for cheaper, but i think 600 and up is good rough estimate

when you read the buyer seller questions the seller says that the turbo only makes 275 hp on 14lbs of bost, that is a far cry from the 500 that they advertise
