that's what i'm actually goin to do, i called the seller first to let them kno the situation and sent them pictures. The then seller sent the pictures to the manufacturer. The manufacturer reply via mail but I also talked to him over the phone he told me it is bubbles from casting and is normal, it won't chip off when it goes hot b/c it is made of aluminum, won't affect the turbo's performance and is safe. Which is contradicting for what i have learned from school. The defect is almost near the turbine.

I don't know enough to say its fine. Im just saying if a credible manufacturer who made the turbo and has experience with their turbos say its fine then it probably is. A credible manufacturer wouldn't sell a defected turbo and would definitely replace it if it was in fact defected. Know what I mean?

You sound like a troll when you say stuff like this. Go do that elsewhere.

Ha, whatever you say. So you will let us know the manufacturer after you got facts or after we "convince you lol". Get your story straight.

Credible or not, if you don't feel comfortable with what they are telling you, return it. You're posting it up because you have a logical concern when you see cracks inside a brand new turbocharger...no thats not normal and I personally wouldn't be ok with it.

Return it and ask for another unit if you're uncomfortable; if it's fine and it's new only shipping is to be lost from either or both parties, provided your agreement allows this.

i asked the vendor to get it replaced and they directed me to the manufacturer.I called the manufacturer he was kinda upset when i told him that my mechanic don't want to install the turbo and told me that my mechanic does not kno what he is doin; still the manufacturer told me to shipped it to them and they will replace it. I guess i will be payin the shippin, but i guess it worth it. hopefully they will fully replace it and won't just rebuild the defect and polish it.

pepe, I wouldn't put that part on my ride. It looks like a POS and the bubble story? Really? What if there is another bubble ready to pop and shards are sent through the mechanism. Sounds like an expensive accident waiting to happen.
