Here's the thing about chinese prodiced parts - they are put together by overqualified people for the most part and since labour is so cheap, they can afford to do 100% inspection on everything.

Think about how smart your average american assembly line worker is. My guess is that the guys in china are better trained to do their jobs and likely not as lazy (I'd bet there is no such thing as the UAW in China). On top of this they do 100% inspection.

The bottom line with Chinese parts is that they deliver exactly what is ordered / specified. If whoever ordered the parts specified quality, properly designed components, they would get quality, well build widgets.

Contrary to the original posters claims, the Chinese Garrett knockoffs are close enough to Garrett originals to swap parts. You can pick up these turbos for cheap and throw a Garrett rebuild kit into it and have a really nice turbo for reasonable money.

I am thinking about picking one up just to take it apart. In theory you could use these turbos to experiment with. Play with different size compressor wheels and turbine housings to tailor your power curve. Then once you work out the combination that makes you happy, buy the real deal from Garrett.
