Anyone know or had one of the mamba turbos. Looking to purchase a turbo in a few weeks time. And after seeing these and there prices on ebay I am tempted as a 1500quid garret is abit out of my range.

Done a bit of research and the feedback varies over different forums.
Hoping some one can shed some light on quality and performance.
I know the company is an off shoot of kinugawa. And they've only been around a couple of years. But I don't think there your average Chinese ones.

The kits themselves look great.
Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/191923388803

What kind of turbo are you after? Turborebuild in blackpool supply chra t28 cores with different build soec i.e hybrid 360 thrust for about 300 to 340 quid and fit your existing housings on for the cost of labour

I was after a 2871r or a 3071r. Or something that will get me around the 400bhp mark. I've just purchased a part forged engine with pistons and ported and polished head so I want to be able to achieve some decent numbers. Any recommendations are welcome

I was looking at them the other day funnily enough, did a bit of research and theres not much out there on them other than they are pretty much the same as Kinugawa. Apparently well made but you dont get much puff out of them.

Info I read was from the poobaru forum

Yeh that's Wat I'd seen and heard. That they don't make the best figures. May be I'll leave that one then

I will have a look at that midlands turbo thanks that sounds a great price. And about the head. I purchased the full engine pre built off a guy on ebay who'd wrapped his car up. U might of seen it on ebay a few week ago. He was just breaking the engine in and his missus rit the car off. But he has sent me all the pics of the build. Will get some relevant ones up later on pal. U can tel me what u think of job that's been done.

If your going for 2871r or 3071r you really need to upgrade the bearing carrier when ordering it. Prices start to mount up but it's defo needed.

I'd 100% go for 3071r over 2871r. It's just a better turbo, the extra torque from the 3071r makes it a better car in my opinion.

After looking at these photos I don't think its been polished. But can you clarify it is ported from the those pictures. I think the lad has done the work himself. Im actually quite worried by what I'm looking. although these are photos of the job in progress. and to be honest I don't know exactly what I'm looking for.

intake don't want to be polished as slight rough surface texture helps fuel air mix . don't want remove to much material either really, exhaust side is where gains can be had easier . Good blueprint of manifolds is a must. Porting is an art form when done real well & needs good experience & flow bench .
I would not touch chinese turbos, seen plenty of the junk in thailand :-D these probably better than some but still under perform & you got fook all warranty plus you looking at potential £100plus import tax bill.
only thing I buy chinese is springrolls, roast duck, prawn crackers & cheap phone repair parts lol .
I'm a big fan of GTX28 & 29 series turbos, if aiming around 400hp you don't need go up to 30 series, GTX28 series can do 500hp easily but real trick spec is indeed big money.
I would hunt around and see what you can get new or used or upgraded from what you already got .
Other option for budget conscious is picking up an evo turbo used as these can be had cheap and build a custom steel manifold from buttweld fittings (steam-pipe) .

This sort of thing >

You can buy them in various diameters and bend radius, bit of cutting and imagination creates all sorts .
If Google the key words you'll get loads of info and see some amazing manifolds made from them.
I used steel as easy weld./work neat and I'm no pro welder plus it has durability and cost advantages over stainless and you can ceramic coat a worthwhile artwork piece for pro finish .
turbinetech did a mitsi 16g-20g manifold for the R ...
