Good way to tell that it's a china charger is that the housings will seldom have any markings--maybe an A/R....maybe. Unless it is used, any turbo that sells for less than $5-$600 is gonna be bootleg. It is entirely true that you get what you pay for.

The turbo brand "Precision" is a good brand.
That's if it is genuine.

A 2871 is a slow spooler. The 2860 is a quick spooler. The gt3071 will spool faster than the 2871.

in that case he's an idiot and you didnt read the ad.

it says right in the add what it is and where its from
(*ISIS RS3871 Turbo - Nissan SR20DET - Enjuku Racing Parts, LLC)

it is NOT precision. it IS a china made turbo, although it may be a tad higher quality than one directly from ebay.

That turbo is fantastic. And ISIS/enjuku warranties it. IF ANYTHING FOR ANY REASON goes wrong, they will replace it. I loved mine, Only reason I sold was to go Holset.

Turbo has a T2 flange, not a T25.

It's hard to go wrong for $250. It's not a Holset, Garrett, Mitsu, Honeywell, or any other OEM unit designed with a 100K+ mile service life...but if you're only expecting to keep the car for a few more years, then why not?

Uh, maybe this warranty isn't really a warranty? Maybe it's a kitten?

Again, the Chinachargers are totally fine as cheap aftermarket upgrades, as long as people don't expect OEM quality and durability. Many people don't, or else they would buy a turbo that has gone through the spec certification and testing for use as a factory-supplied unit.
