Well I just got the turbo in today and it has some side to side shaft play, No end to end, but still more than i was expecting. I'll post a video up in a bit. Anyone know how much it to much?

I sent a pm to them. I just want to see what they say. I've had 2 turbo cars but they had ball bearing turbos and zero shaft play.

Journal bearing turbos HAVE some shaft play, when there is oil presure built up there will be no play.

Journal bearings have shaft play. Think you'd contact them and ask before starting a thread about it.
Thanks I just thought I would get actual users input oppose to a salesman's "o it's fine" now I and others know it's normal. Thanks for the response.

Thanks guys, I feel good about it now. It has so much potential. Just a perfict size single turbo, and couldn't ask for a better price.
