No mate just was checking oil feed etc as roller bearing use a lot less oil so require a restrictor some companies don't supply them.
Should just bolt on mate was it bought for a pulsar ?
Don't forget your new gaskets
If it's brand new turbo pre fill with some oil
What's the oil drain like on it ?

Chinese copy's if its full turbo google it some people getting good results and there lasting others going bang. Some genuine companies offering cores at a good price.

depends on power your looking for. How you want the power delivered. Space if you run a bigger rad. Manifold choice if you change it
