It will be a chinese knockoff turbo without ball bearings.. and it would be a very slow spool... I wouldn't suggest one that cheap.

i was just shocked at the price, there are hundreds on ebay for under $200 . . .they have real serial numbers . .must be knock offs . . .

So my 88 turbo . . .does it have a T3? I kind of like the idea of going to a T3/T4 setup . . .

Hi Chris,

The cheap turbos you can get from Ebay are most likely "chinese fake junk" ... these turbos are well known for not being well made. Poor material, poor balancing, resulting in inadequate performance and very short lifetime ...

Additionally non of these cheap turbos have the correct downpipe connector for the Esprit. What we need for the Esprit is a conical connector with 3 threaded studs. This version actually is quite rare and special.

Yes your MY88 has a T3, however there are many many different T3 versions.

Cheers

Marcus
