Ebay turbo? If so stay away...they are junk. The oil seals will go quickly even with a restrictor. The thrust bearings are junk...so soon as you put some boost on them it the thrust bearing gives way which puts too much side load on the oil rings.

If it's a Garrett or Precision then yea good turbo's! I personally think the T04E 50 trim has a better map.
