hi guys about 9 months ago i bought a td05 16g big from my local performance shop wacked it on and tuned it my self i was always told it was TTS or something like that turns out its a TD05 16G big from cx racing now here is my part,
people always give negative about ebay turbos, online turbos, no branded i spent $500 aus with warranty on my turbo currently pushing about 21 psi @ around 320whp ive had this for about 9 months and still going strong if the turbo does go ill buy something bigger and better this turbo goes hard with no doubt the amount of torque i get when boost comes on it puts me in my seat and holds 21psi till 7300rpm
negative from my side is that with a tmic spool time is a big jump from standerd, full boost @3800rpm maybe because im running high amount of boost?
i also get abit of boost creep but thats if i have a low boost setting lets say 18 psi by 5000rpm it would creep to 20psi (this problem could have been avoided by porting the wastegate)
i think all in alll this turbo isnt like the other ebay turbo's like the TBO ones, cx racing td05 16g is actually half decent in my books, my friend has a td06 20g Ebay turbo @20 psi in his 04 wrx and my one pulls harder he said it himself mind you he has a fmic as i have a sti tmic
