Saw this for sale. Any input? Looks like a fair deal, but I don't know too terrible much about turbos:

I got a t3/to4b garett turbo

just had a new center section put on with new bearings and seals
at the same time i had the compressor wheel and housing upgraded to a .50 trim to4b
exhaust side is a .48 stage 3
internal wastegate is set at 8 psi

500 obo

it will work, but its going to take 3-5k(low ball) in supporting mods, LOL! this turbo would be considered a cheaper non ball bearing alternative to a smaller rotated gt30r. youd need to "go rotated" or a clocked turbo setup - which means new uppipe and downpipe just for starters. then you would need to have a custom intake/intercooler piping made , would be a nightmare!

you need to find a cheap stock location turbo for your needs. just get a vfxx or 18g, these are proven to work....

well that is a fair enough answer. So the realatively good price of the turbo is highly offset by the rest of the setup! Much thanks!
