Blown turbo - 1999 9-5
The turbo on my 1999 9-5 blew out this morning. I'm researching repair and/or replacement...

Has anyone tried one of the chinese GT17 turbos off ebay for $300?

The car has 300,000 miles on it, and replacing the turbo is cheaper than buying a new car. If a chinese turbo gets me another couple years and or another 50,000 miles I think I'd be happy.
