GT25RS Turbocharger

Hi Scooby lovers. I had bought on ebay.com turbocharger model GT25RS on boallbearing. mount this into my WRX and after few day it started to make some strange noises. Finally my turbo is broaken. Did anyone of you guys here heard about this model ? Is it some crappy MADE IN CHINA one ? Which of turbo you will recommend to put into my WRX 2002 year ? I have put Denso pink injectors, have 3" exhaust system ? How much safe power I can build from this setup ? What about Nm ? What is safe for stock clutch ?

Wow, it's like you broke every rule in the book. Upgraded ebay turbo, no fuel pump or IC, NO TUNE and thinking of upgrading your clutch. No safe horsepower can be derived from that setup. Do you hate your car?

I'm not trying to be a jerk, but you have to do SOME research before you start throwing crap on your car man. You're lucky it was that pos turbo and not your engine.

1. Your ebay turbo lasted a few days? Shocking, I'm surprised it lasted that long
2. You always tune for every mod. You would have been better off with an accessport and stock parts
3. Stock tranny? Stock clutch!

To get an idea of how different your car is from a Honda Civic, read this:

It's by no means the Subaru Bible, I found a couple mistakes re-reading (turbo timers, clutch's), but it's a start.

A GT25R is a dinky turbo. It's about the same size as a Td04l-13T.

EGAY? I don't care what you're trying to imply with that. As first posts go, that was pretty crappy. Warning issued.

WE DO NOT TOLERATE USING G A Y OR F A G AS A PEJORATIVE ON THIS FORUM!
