900 hp probably not. We have seen some guy get away with some of the cheap e-bay stuff. We have also seen some of it destroy themselves!

The thing do you want to put your name on a build with a pile of e-bay parts?

They make great door stops.

In all seriousness, stay away from those turbos. They are flat junk. The thrust bearing is made of marsh mellow and the units are not rotor group balanced...just component balanced which is NOT good unless you plan to run the turbo on a 1200 rpm commercial diesel generator. :rolleyes:
