A couple of the prices for your turbo are 480ish and one of them is listed at 577 and 777. My not sure how you got 900 cheaper when Tischer is 1300 for both.

+1.

With the amount of time it takes to change them, even if they are a little more I'd stick to OEM. Hell, I'd probably try and find some low mile used OEM before those Roto's.

Fair enough. There are a few sets in the FS section if you go that route.

I'm on a budget too (lost my job)

These rotomaster turbos seem legit.

Did you end up buying them?

I figure about $1350Cad shipped is decent. How do we get $$ for our cores?

OEM Brand New Mitsubishi turbos are $557 a piece online. I'm getting them installed this week. They are 100% identical to genuine BMW. In fact BMW sources it from Mitsubishi.

Or you can go to TisherBMW and get remanufactured genuine BMW turbos for $650 a piece.

Don't put in no-name off-brand turbos!!

Where online can you get new Mitsubishi turbos for $557 a piece? Don't forget the exchange rate which sucks right now.

That's wonderful. $700USD = $908CAD

+ duties you're looking at $1000CAD/per turbo.

Rock auto supplies Rotomasters for $615CAD/per turbo

big difference.

Seems like the first person to post about these turbos had a bad experience. It's the post that was just bumped before this one. I would try and find a pair of used OEM. I'm selling my upgraded hexon 550's for $2000usd if that sparks your interest.

The person you're referring to is the original poster of this thread. He answered his own question.
