Their main line of turbos uses a triple ceramic ball bearing CHRA which can be done in water/oil cooled or just oil cooled (billet CHRA), they even offer a oil less CHRA which you actually pack with grease like a wheel bearing. There are a few A4 owners here on this forum that are running Comp Turbos.
A few things that are nice about the Comp Turbo is the fact that all of their turbos can be completely rebuilt and the fact that you can have the wheels changed later which means your not stuck having to sell a used turbo to end up buying a brand new one. Their CT3 and CT4 use the same backing plate for the compressor housing, which means you can always swap between those 2 different size housings.
Here is a VW VR6 FWD that runs a CT oil less turbo that runs 9's.
Do you think a team like this would put a ebay type turbo to run 6.95 in the 1/4 mile? Hell no. lol
Picture of a Supra with Twin CT4-6265's that makes 1400.
