Any turbo would work, as long as it's what power goals you're wanting to hit. From what I hear a 16g would be a better option, but it would work. Seems like a fair price as long as it works.

just making sure you know that there is a lot of other stuff you will need to get to make that work with the foci. it isnt just bolt on and go.

i know its no bolt on, but i figure since he is gonna sell it anyway and it seems like a cheap way to start...

go for it. just make sure it was running good when it was on the car and there is minimal shaft play. it would suck to buy and install it only to watch it spew oil everywhere and cause your car to smoke.

I'm running a 14b that I got for $50. I say hold out for a better deal if that's the turbo you're going to use. Try DSMTrader or Homemadeturbo.com's for sale section for better deals.

120 is high for a used turbo.
If you go that route start really cheap and rebuild it, or just buy new.

Charles turbo is in great condition. This is your ticket to get in the boosted club to start.
I personally would go with an external wastegate, but to each their own.
