The SSautochrome is suppose to be a bad company to buy turbo's. There is a post from many months ago, that have pictures of one cracking in half, and looked like it was glued together. I mean, all those feedback ratings are left before people have had their cars running for months. Cause thats when they break, or so i've read. I have no personal experience.

Search in here, and you'll find the post.

I would stay away from SSautochrome/Stone Moutainracing/XS-Power. There are people who have used those turbos only to have them fail within a few months.




275hp & 306tq - 1999 2.2 ohv
13.2 @ 108 mph
-1996 2.4 liter + Turbo + Built motor + Torco + More boost = Lots o' Power
-2000 Mustang GT + 2004 Cobra motor, Whipple 2.3 supercharger,
built rear-end,Dodge Viper spec T56 6 speed, bolt-ons = wheelies at the track!!!!!

stay away from them trust me. you should of been around here when they were getting flamed. a guy on the jeep fourms had a pic of one being split at the seams. If you really want a good turbo wait for it. Your best bet for a fast find is a seller on there named g-pop shop or something like that. I can get you the offical name if you want it. quailty turbos for cheap. they were my last resort. or you can do like I did and wait for three moths for the right turbo to show up. I got a 60/68 internally gated mint condition for 167. best bid of my life.
