    I say it sounds like a stonemountain special. Be careful of those.

    The name SSAC sells under on ebay. They all have those exact specs, and sometimes have garret markings.

    t3/t04e .57/.63; 60 a/r is what i would use for the setup he mentions.

    I was actually wondering this myself. They have all these E-bay auctions for their $500 turbo kit consisting of manifold, turbo, and wastegate. The manifold is TIG welded and the turbo is a garrett I believe... what's the deal? Add some piping, a fmic, and a hondata and you have a cheap turbo setup?

    Even HMT guys diss on them for quality, citing examples where the turbo just *fails*. A Turbo shouldn't do that ever unless you are doing somthing terribly wrong or powerful.

    first of all I'd ask what kind of ls/vtec you are using. There are quite a few possible combos, and I'd be looking at your compression ratio a bit when deciding turbo size.

    okay take this example
    rebuilt stock b18a/b block, bored 20 over, with a blockguard, decked, and the head resurfaced.... does any one have real examples of failure associated with cheap turbos...

    all the time. turbonetics is often call turboheadaches. there's a reason.

    and please god don't use a block guard. and don't thin your already weak sleeves by going 20 over. and please use millmeters. we don't build chevys. say your taking it from 81 to 81.5mm. it makes much more sense than .020"
