    You need a picture of the front to look at the numbers on the housing.

    its a china knock-off, its real but only good for a paperweight or conversation piece.

    Usually any ad on ebay that has to resort to using 18+ point font is some knock off company.

    This is my favorite part though:

    Note; The items in photographs are typical of the ones you wll receive!

    Feedback: Please contact us first if for some reason you feel that
    you cannot give us ratings of 5 in all categories. E-Bay now punishes sellers that get scores less than 5. We are sure we can work out any issues that might come up. Thank you in advance for your feedback!

    I don't trust eBay at all. Though they may be many reputable companies selling through that site, there are just as many or even more people trying to take advantage of you and get your hard earned money.

    No real turbos like that have the adjustable wastegate. Or a flat area like that for the label plate. If there was a close up of that, I'm sure it'd say Turbocharger at the top.

    Do yourself a favor, stop looking on ebay for performance parts. You will be much better off spending a few hundred dollars more on race proven and quality proven parts than no-name knock-offs. This isn't like (Hilfigure vs Walmart), if that turbo malfunctions under a load, you just bought a new engine! As for the ad being real, yes, it is real. But just so you know, we have all heard horror stories of ebay (go-fast-for-cheap-parts) Stick with the vendors found on this site. I personally like Forced Performance turbos.:D

    I like how the description has "NOT A CHEAP KNOCK OFF FROM CHINA" in it. That is hilarious.
