The link isn't working. If you can name the turbo and it's a/r "the numbers on the exhaust side of the turbo and the compressor side I'm sure somone can help you out on the info, and also the seller. If it's a powere seller it's likley somone else has tried them here.

I'll guess it's a garret or air research t-3 they are popular but the a/r ratio is pretty important You'll need sombody that knows more about the stuff than me about that though

Buying a turbo from eBay is a very bad idea. VERY bad.

Do you know what can happen if a cheap turbo fails? Let's say the oil breaks down, the turbine overheats and siezes, one of the blades cracks free.

Guess where it is going? That's right, into your throttle body and down into the engine.

FI should always be done carefully and correctly. There is no cheap route to turbo.

I agree, buying a turbo from ebay isn't a good idea, but if its all you can afford get it rebuilt by a qualified perfessional before putting it in your car. It will cost you more money but an engine costs more.

yeah, if your gonna buy a cheap turbo, buy on REALLY cheap that you know is shot, but the housings and such are in decent shape, then take it to a local qualified professional and have it rebuilt for like $150-200.
