This is what the turbo looks like
Putting this stuff on a disposable $2k rice motor is one thing; question is, would u put any of this on the $20k++ lump sitting in the back of your ride?

I dunno, it's a crapshoot i guess, and a choice only the buyer can make. What's gonna suck tho is when the day comes that you don't even have an option of buying the good stuff at any price, which from the sound of things, seems like it's just around the corner.
