    I bought this turbo for my ls/vtec project. I'm shooting for atleast 400whp (450 on meth). I know its a ball-bearing but I was wondering if anyone know the brand and if it'll hold up to the power levels im looking for? here are a few pics:

    I don't know the brand but a real GT35R(I'm not saying yours isn't either) will more than make the power you're looking for.

    garrett makes the gt series turbos.

    a gt35R with a .70a/r will take you well into the 500's on a gsr

    it's likely generic, but who cares?

    as long as you run a proper -3an feed line, the restrictor is probably not necessary.

    I talked this over with my cousin and he's running a -4 with .035 restrictor. He suggests that even with a -3 line i should still run a restrictor? he is also running a gt35r (his is a real garrett haha) on a built nissan 2.4
