    uhm, i'm guessing it came with a turbonetics tag on it didn't it?

    xs power seems to sell knock off type shit...
    you can get the whole turbo kit on ebay brand new with a buy it now of 900-925, starting bids at 799.00

    i would research the turbo and make sure it not a knock off cause i have heard horror stories about knock off turbonetics turbos being epoxied together and other shit...

    not true. we used one on a GSR that we turbo'd. ran for 5000miles so far. no shaft play whatsoever, no oil leaks. boosts just fine. unless you have firsthand experience with a part, you shouldnt knock it

    fuck yeah its true...we bought one just to check it out last year from ebay..
    we slapped in into my buddies dsm and the shit broke in less then a month.....lots of shaft play...according to the guy the turbo was a turbonetics unit...but its a XSBOnetic POS....
    XS POWER turbo = waste of money....

    SSAC/XS POWER... same shit<span style="font-size:24pt;line-height:100%">....GARBAGE</span>

    Your buddy says they are good....
    I see you in a couple of weeks here asking how to rebuild the shit......2 weeks and counting.. :)

    supposedly, the new xs power turbos use garrett internals, with their housings. i have no actual verification of that, but it seems their newer products are starting to have some quality to them.

    shaft play is shaft play

    it can go in and out, or side to side...
