We currently are working on a sr20 swapped 240 with a cheapo turbo kit presumably from ebay. No name turbo no name manifold still using a side mount IC.The turbo failed. It seized causing the compressor turbine to spin on the shaft and the retaining nut to come off. the nut found its way into the engine (it made its way through the IC and past the valves) cylinder number four is pounded to shit from the nut the head is screwed and so is the piston.
Just this one example should put some perspective into this discussion.

My buddies down in the states buy those kits.. the first thing they do is throw out the crappy Turbo (or they use it for funny shit like turboing lawn mowers and stuff) then they buy a half decent turbonetics turbo or something similar...

Its a good base... but your better off finding someone who is selling an almost complete kit and finishing it off, the last thing you want is that turbo to ingest itself... and ruin a perfectly good motor

Its the Chinacharger kits! I have seen a couple used with good luck but not running anything more then 6-8psi of boost which is peanuts, especially on a 2.4L motor. Its an offshore product most likely built in a plant that does not meet or exceed ISO9001 standards. As mentioned by previous posters the kit may be something good to work on if you replace the turbo but if you are set on having a cheap turbo kit be ready to rape your engine or replace turbos frequently, also I think most of the turbos they use in those kits are a journal style bearing which is slightly outdated technology but still ok. Just remember its always buyer beware you get what you pay for and a turbo is something I wouldn't recommend cheaping out on it can be a huge bill in the end.
