I found this:

http://rochester.craigslist.org/pts/1458013028.html

I have been looking into a gt2871r but would it be worth putting on in place until I can get the 2871? It says its a XS-Power brand but I have never heard of that brand.

It says it has a 5 bolt flange setup but I am not sure what this means because it also says its a t3 flange.

Thanks for the help!

xs power is a brand that ssautochrome sells on ebay. Ive heard mixed reviews about them. some people hate them because they blow up in a week and some say they work great as long as you use an oil restrictor with it because the seals are horrible on turbo. I think they go for 300 on ebay.

dont waste you money on that turbo, save it and when you are ready get the gt2871r eliminator. bolt on turbo for your car. ssatuchrome is only good for the S4 downpipes/exhaust.

I'm not sure if I would let someone pay me to run that..
Don't waste your time and money.

They either blow right away or work fine on low boost for a while. They are unbalanced and once shaft speeds start to go up they fall apart, sometimes very literally/violently...

DO it right or twice.
