    Chinese copies.

    Barge pole, and wouldn't touch springs to mind. They tend to be poorly balanced and self destruct very quickly

    I was very suspect about them

    I know someone that works with turbos and could balance one for me if needed?

    But i doubt the materials used are any good though, turbos get up to crazy temeperatures, get a decent second hand one if you need one to replace.

    add the price off them to the price of a proper one plus labour charges x2 and they're not very cheap....

    Nothing comes cheap these days! Anything that looks too good to be true, probably is!
