New Chinese $165 500Hp turbo for real?

Probably a stupid question but here goes..



Or others shown on Aliexpress when you search.. GT3076R/GT3076

Can these turbos go on my Evo 6 (currently have evo 9 turbo)

If so do I need more components?

I live in Thailand and can import this with no import duties as its from China. Whereas buying Garrett that is 6x the price I have to pay 200% import duties making it 12X more expensive. I only drive near my home and labour to install components here is very cheap so I was thinking to take a chance with a cheap Chinese turbo. Any thoughts?

Since you are in Thailand and the import laws are breaking your neck. It's really up to you if you would want to buy those. If you were living in the states this would be a no from me dawg and I am sure everyone on here would agree. Just keep the evo 9 turbo its a good turbo and can make 350-400hp depending on your supporting mods/fuel you run.

An evo 9 turbo would last longer. Depends what you want...but 160 dollar turbo is probably garbage.
..wait....IS garbage.
