yep $239 is what I paid plus shipping. gt45 y2004k knockoff garret piece. alot of people have had problems with the ebay turbos in the past but you won't find any post knocking this one at all....... the shaft is big and has been balanced. wheels are nice and housings are not glued together!!!.

wg is ebay (wynton n) is the name on top. stainless base, nice steel sleeve for the valve stem to ride in and orange bladder. set at 9psi (checked with homemade pressure setup) bov is a turbosmart piece but if I had to buy one, after seeing the work inside the wg I'd buy a wynton...... saw 5psi on the gauge when I glanced at it but tell-tell swt saw 9 before I lifted. still only part throttle
