I just took a closer look at the pics on ebay. There is something definately fishy about this turbo. I remembered on mine that the blades of the intake were significantly different on the Kokeln than on the stock 3ldz. Attached is a picture of my stock turbo blades. You can even see the difference on the Kokeln site. The one for sale looks like it has the guts of the stock unit. Also attached is a pic from the Kokeln site that shows the blades - they are sculpted while the stock unit is stamped from a flat piece of metal.

Anyway, hope this helps.

The center housing where the oil feeds is a little corroded/rusted for 200 miles. I have 200-300 miles on mine and it still looks like new. All the housings look correct, but the innards are suspect.
