If you're wanting this turbo to last, I would either not consider the eBay turbos OR buy and and have the turbo internals replaced and either the manifold reinforced or another manifold. eBay manifolds have been known to break off or crack very very easily. I had a friend who owned a local tuner shop in NC and he would install these turbos and all too many times the turbos shaft play would be way out of spec etc. So after he would replace the internals for 100 bucks or so they'd be as good as a more expensive one, as long as you are cautious about the break in and such. Also, dont forget to spend that extra penny for a good tune. A turbo is only as good as its tune. (dont forget that) haha hope this helps.
