Just bought this thing yesterday.





Twin scroll(I think) MHI 25g. 4" compressor inlet, 2.5" compressor outlet, 3" turbine outlet.

I don't know much about it either. It is most definitely a twin scroll turbine side. I plan on disassembling it and measuring the various points of interest.

Wasn't Broxma running a cheap ebay turbo? Haven't had an update on it in a while. Maybe it blew up and he is too ashamed to update on it?

It has markings identifying it as an MHI turbo: the numbers on the compressor housing is correct for a 25g as is the number on the turbine housing. There is also the Mitsubishi "star" symbol present on the turbine housing. The exducer and inducer measurements match those of the Greddy td07 25g turbo. The housing does not have the typical Greddy badging but does look very similar to the housing that came on the "Super 25g" sold by Hahn: click

The numbers and star symbol are certainly reproducable but I have not seen a Chinabay turbo that had Mitsubishi markings. All signs point to either a legit MHI 25g, Greddy 25g or Hahn Racecraft 25g.

I may be prone to have that attitude if it were a stock engine that I had not torn into. However, I do not have a stock engine, I have an engine that has a bunch of expensive parts that I would rather not strap a Chinabay turbo to.

One guy makes the comment "Looks like an eBay turbo..." and suddenly the turbo becomes an imitation turbo without any other evidence. Awesome.

I'll admit, that's what I thought when I first saw it.

But really, who cares? If you know it isn't than use it.

Where did you buy it?

The compressor housing does look generic (it's possible somebody ground down any raised markings, although the ones that are on there are in a weird spot), but maybe the exhaust side is not...See if you can find any information with the numbers that are etched onto the comp. housing.

He's still running it, last I saw he was running 27psi thru it. Still going VERY strong. There haven't been any updates because we've been working on other vehicles. Thank you for your intrest and concern though.

I agree 100% that the comp housing looks odd. But it looks exactly like the comp housing on that Hahn piece. The numbers on it are 49187-00920 and they check out as a TD07S 25g.

It was purchased from a friend and I was only told that it was on a RB26 something in the Cincy area; possibly one of the Skylines we have around here or one of the swapped 240sxs. I have found that Greddy offered these as upgrades to DSM turbo kits and in MR2 turbo kits.

For one day I had a 57 trim eBay turbo on my first 4g63 swapped Colt. The turbo did just fine producing around 20lbs of boost, did not let any oil past the seal and had no shaft play when I removed it.

No, I saw a $200 dollar turbo and assumed ebay.
But I suppose unbelievably great deals are out there.

To the original point of my Ebay Turbo Experiment - How many people cursing the good Ebay Turbo name here, have actually bought and used one? I'm not talking about, "oh I got this Ebay S16g from some dude and it sploded a week later", I mean put the money down for fresh Ebay goodness and gave it all she had? None? Very few? Then let's keep the anecdotal evidence at bay until we have some first hand experience shall we?

While that turbo does look rather Ebay, honestly, shit if I know. I don't think I would recommend buying "Used" Ebay, especially considering you can get the GT35R shipped to your door for 288.55. But even so, why not? Whats the harm in dropping a few bucks to try something out, and if it breaks, who cares? It cost you the sum total of the purchases for the average Starbucks drinker in a single month.

And to set the record straight, Steve is dead correct. My Ebay 35R is absolutely flawless. I change the oil religiously with VR1 20w-50 and the thing has zero play, zero push and spools to 27psi by 4500 rpm every time I hit the pedal, regardless of if I want it to or not, but that's the wastegates fault, not the turbo. Oh, the wastegate? It's a Tial. Shoulda gone Ebay.

I am big into recycling though and if your not into sacrifice or burnt offerings, you may want to stick with 93 octane.

I have used them with success which was an e-3 16g which made good power and never had any quality issues and the na-t supra guys are making north of 500whp on them so they can work and honestly the quality is most likely better than precision's junk turbos
However in a serious performance application there is no way I would rely on one but thats just my opinion.

By that logic my $300 JM Fab SMIM and $250 BC 280 cams are probably really some other knock-off brands. HAHA

I was never asking a question about the turbo or inquiring as to the authenticity of the turbo. I was merely sharing with you doods my awesome purchase of an MHI turbo. It will most certainly be used on the car without any fear or regret. Based on CFM production numbers and a comparison of the turbine and compressor wheels with other known turbos I believe it is capable of producing around 600whp. It should be laggier than other turbos but I am considering a little low end kick in the pants to spool it quicker.
