    ok i bought a turbo kit from a relative's friend...it came with a cheap a** turbo but i bought the kit knowing i would upgrade later...it is made by xspower and on the tag it reads
    TYPE: TD40
    PART No.: D15 D16 (T25)

    what turbo do i have? a td40 ( which some people have never heard or call a td04 but i doubt that) or a t25...to me it looks like the smallest turbo there is...i know it only boosts 8.7 psi without a boost controller but can boost 20 psi max

    is it from that sschromeauto.com place? i have heard that there stuff is really cheap wich it is but also you get what you pay for. things like the manifold cracking after like 2 or 3 weeks of 7-8 lbs of boost from a t3/04e i dont know but i wouldnt trust a company that doesnt have a contact phone number on their sight just a order fax number and an e-mail address.......well thats my 2 cents hope it works out for ya thanks for listening

    XSPower and sschromeauto SUCKS! My "sschromeauto turbo" is trash. blows oil all through the exhaust and intercooler pipes.

    I did have a XSPower manifold..... it was cracked all to hell and I had to re-weld it twice a week!

    :thumbsup: for your intercooler and bov!

    hks and trust are good rep companies as you probably already know but if i were you i would trash anything that has ( xs or ssautochrome ) on it this stuff is simply a waste of dr pepper can metal its pathetic......sell it to some ricer kid with the insane body kits and lights on the tires.....good luck

    Negativo, we got the T25 with "M10, .48 A/R" on the compressor cover. 1st gen autos had the TD04-13g however which may be what you're thinking of.

    full race has good prices on turbos, they are all garrett. precision would be another good brand.
