Yep certainly is too good to be true, on Surrey we have quite a few members that have bought the "copied" turbos off ebay and various other places and have made very poor power with them.
They are cheap imported copies (usually from china) badged as a TD05 but they are NOT a genuine mitsubishi TD0516G by any means.
Fake goods, avoid!

Not to mention that the TD05-16G is a poor match for the engine in a EDM S-turbo, laggy as heck and not enough extra power to make up for it!

You can tell its an 'ooky copy by the casting and lack of detail on the compressor housing.

They are not just on Ebay, Mr Corky Bell sells Chinese turbos, and when they fail prematurely he refuses to replace them under warranty.

he is a very clever man when it comes to Forced Induction but his customer service skills suck! - buy his books but not his turbos!
