    IIRC, the only thing on the compressor housing is the precision logo, and an ar number, on the turbine wheel, its just an ar number. IIRC, the center section doesnt have any markings on it

    work in progress...

    Talked to Joe and he said he would reimburse the cost of the ball bearing upgrade. He personally wasnt aware the turbo on my ride wasnt the race turbo I had paid for. So I edited this post to let everyone know Joe took care of the mistake and I appreciate it.

    So he wasn't aware, but somehow you got an eBay bearing? Okay.

    But either way, very glad to hear it worked out.

    I was talking about the center section. Not the housing. But whatever. I don't think there's anything there either

    well Joe explained to me what his shop does to manufacture his turbo wheels in house....the guy at Boost Lab just called it Chinese or E-bay knock off....im not going say Joe's isnt good. It lasted a year and the whole build I got from his shop was 2k less than anywhere else and the tune is perfect....I mean perfection. I know things happen...as long as he is a man of his word everything is fair and cool

    The housing is some bootleg housing, but that wouldn't matter. And could possibly be better. That is possible.

    The center section supposedly is Precision. Supposedly. I do not know one way or the other.

    The bearings and seals and all that are what you don't want to be Chinese.

    I confirmed with joe, he had several new center sections from precision, with precision stickers on them, and the housings were separate. thing is, they are all based on the garrett design, which was never copyrighted, so anyone can make garrett copies. precision did modify the center section from what garret designed, they put a bigger bearing housing in it. the CHRA is what makes it a precision, the housings are 'supposed' to flow better than precision, but I dont know as this has been independently tested

    work in progress...

    I imagine it's not obvious identifying a CHRA unless it has obvious markings/branding on it. Or unless it's one you're familiar with.

    So I could definitely see assuming one was a knock off if it wasn't branded and/or you weren't familiar with it, and if it was sitting there with no name housings.

    If you paid for BB then didn't you say something if you received journal instead? (maybe you were quoting AARGH and forgot quotation marks lol )

    I have journal bearing. Not bothered by that. BB is better and probably definitely worth the extra money. But nothing really wrong with journal bearing turbos assuming they are quality journal bearings.

    For sure! You're supposed to get what you pay for.

    Glad he is covering your upgrade expense. Would been pretty shity not to have done that or at least to have compensated you some way for not getting what you paid for.

    yes. And Joe said that was what he would do...and I appreciate it...man I have had some jobs go sideways when I was advising for Toyota and know what it feels like to have a customer looking at you like you shot their dog. Im trying not to be that guy. I am giving 2J a chance to make it right.

    How many miles did you put on that turbo by the way? A bit over a year isn't very long.


    I'll assume you had the recommended restrictor since 2j did your install.


    Idk if I'll rebuild mine how it is when needed or upgrade instead. Make that decision when the time comes I guess. But assume I will most likely upgrade. Would enjoy the improved response.

    well, im not a turbo expert but the expert at Boost Lab said if I dont change my oil every 2k miles with full synthetic, and if the oil does not have a good flow through then in about a yr or 2 ill most likely be seeing him again.

    I have the drain hose as straight as possible... and he said the restrictor isnt a good idea because his friend has a turbo b15 and goes without a restrictor and it works better - keeps center section cooler.
    and the turbo blanket is a bad idea unless you have to have it. It holds excess heat inside but he said if you can live without it then go that route.

    He took my 2J turbo completely apart and showed me everything. we talked for about an hour going over maintenance

    I change my oil like every 1,000 miles or less with full synthetic lol because I hardly drive the car. Change the oil just because it's old from time haha


    You don't need a restrictor unless oil pressure is causing seals to leak, which was happening and is why people run restrictors. Could be different with a different turbo obviously.


    I prime my oil before startup. And I cool the engine down before I shut down if I've been driving even moderately hard. All for the turbo.

    He took my 2J turbo completely apart and showed me everything. we talked for about an hour going over maintenance
    what was the required maintenance he suggested?

    i feel the oil when pushed hard doesn't even last that long [2000mi.]
    that's why i try to change it before and after track days

    or before and after a two day cruise like the dragons tail

    however, i feel i must use the heat blanket
    as it gets hot enough to melt electrical connections
    on the alternator


    an oil cooler seems almost mandatory?


    i had no faith in turbos
    didn't think it would last a week

    so i wanted no turbo upgrades
    and the least expensive to replace or repair, turbo i could get

    so mine is precision nothing
    but not an ebay special

    the journal bearing has gone thru many events
    and i often forget the cool down periods

    8,000 miles
    now you may think that's nothing

    but compare to my previous motors

    qr25de 8000miles and only part savable was the crank
    vq approx 10,000, lost ring land
    stocker, 45,000, needed new head and clutch

    yada, yada

    not bad looked at that way

    will i upgrade the turbo
    no way

    can't use more power
    nor faster spool

    it's faster than me now
    don't think i can use anymore acceleration

    when the time comes,
    just throw some seals and rebuild kit in this turbo

    i honestly think he assembled mine out of whatever he had around
    cause nether one of us thought this would last a month
