Yup, you get what you pay for..
On mine, within less than 2 tanks of gas, the chra puked out..
Lots of oil in the intake.. Nobody has service parts for a no name china turbo and it's just not worth it..
I primed it by pouring oil in the oil feed tube and pulled the efi fuse and cranked it till I saw oil coming from the drain line, buttoned it all up and ran it..
Also, internal wastegates blow, lots of erratic boost creep no matter what you do.. External is your friend..
I said why the hell not and dropped some coin on the KO Turbo kit in late March, should have everything by the 1st of May because he said with his schedule he's a month out..
Gonna be a good year
