Ebay post shows borgwarner factory reman turbos going for 265 free shipping from a company called precision desiel and auto supplies, saying 20 years in business yadda yadda http://vi.raptor.ebaydesc.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItemDescV4&item=122215698701&category=33742&pm=1&ds=0&t=1496523482737 looks ok, so i tried them, turbo self destructed on a 4 mile test drive, oil seal internal failure, burning my new 0 40 oil like iv never seen, anyways the turbo i received was not oem, and it was sent from a different company completely with the same address as stated above, received turbo from company called thor turbo lol wtf far cry from percision auto desiel, watch out for these guys, and im a certified auto diesel technician, so watch out for these guys!!!

It's pretty well known that ebay turbos are pretty shit without a rebuild of the seals using genuine parts. As a qualified diesel tech im confused as to why you'd think a 265 turbo would perform at all [:D] I wish they were that cheap!

Oem is oem, if it was a remanufactured oem i wouldnt have worried about anything but it wasn't, they lied to me and sent me a knockoff oem, which is not what they were advertising

I just bought a K04 turbo from ATTA turbo to replace my broken OEM K03. It is branded from JM turbo. They send you a sheet saying it passed a balance test and there are paint marks on the wheels. I feel that if the turbo is properly primed when installed and it is balanced it should be OK. Only time will tell[:D]

I hope it works put for you, i ended up rebuilding a turbo with parts i has from the 2, waste gate internal valve on the hot side was gone, so used my oem cartridge with the exhaust side of the turbo, and the front of my old oem turbo, Frankensteined it together till i can get hands on a ko4
