I have a buddy that has used those turbos and he said the bearings are crap. So, he buys them and rebuilds them with a good rebuild kit. Then they are good to go.

OBX is on par with Godspeed in my opinion. That is my personal opinion. You don't see the guys out there setting records with OBx do you?

Im just saying for the price of that questionable kit you could have a brand new precision turbo. Then a couple hundred more have your piping. Or call them and see if you can order sans turbo and put something that has a reputation of success.
