    This is really too bad. I feel for all involved, as they spent thousands and recieved bullshit chinese turbo's. Peter at APS is nothing short of a joke. There seems to be zero hope for any person with a failed turbo. Shipping to and from Aussyland would be stupid high... and you probably would not get your turbo's back If any of you guys/gals are on othr car websites, be it Honda/Mazda/Mustang... any car site... Spead this word. APS needs to be completely out of buisness completely after this.

    their turbos are failing and they are not accepting them back as returns and replacing them..so people are left to buy new turbos out of pocket...and aps does not sell their kit without turbos.....it seems to be their turbo supplier are some cheap knock-offs

    he did make a new thread to "help" the current owners out but offering a upgraded ball bearing turbo, but wont trade the defective/original turbos for a credit ... just wants to sell more to someone who's already invested in the kit and is having trouble ... what an asshat!

    Sigh. This is too bad, it'd be nice if he would look into Garrett or something of the like. I'm coming from imports (don't bash, think of it as a personal realization ) to LS1's, I know of ALOT of good turbo companies available for imports but as far as a general application standpoint Garrett is seriously the way to go. It's sad that cheap CDM (chinese domestic market) shit has to be used especially from a "big" well known company such as APS.

    Same thing here. Procharger or build a turbo system myself. Since I don't have time to do that until I get home, it'll be a long wait. TIme to bypass the vendors and all work together on building a turbo system for the F-body and GTO/others. Need to figure out the A/R for your displacement, learn how to tig weld up an exhaust or hi quality cast iron manifolds. Why in the hell do we keep buying crap from China? Pure shit!!!!
