I went through a few turbos on my old daily driver before finally spending some real cash. First a Masterpower that only lasted one year before blowing the turbine side oil seal, then a used/old school (unknown builder, Garrett parts) turbo with a clipped wheel, after that started blowing oil on the compressor side I borrowed an OEM Garrett from a friend to hold me over. The Garrett was nothing special but my friend ran it for many years before letting me borrow it and you would have thought it was brand new. After that I decided to open my wallet. I called Turbonetics and told them my engine combination and bought exactly what they recommended. WOW is all I can say! If I could go back in time I would have called them right away. Power band is broader, power is smoother... best of all I have put 20,000+ miles of street use on the turbo with no oil leaks at all. If I didn't go with Turbonetics I would go with a Garrett GT ball bearing turbo.
