Just so we're comparing apples to apples, your link above is not for a K16, but for a hybrid K04 turbo.I'm also a bit interested what the best deal is. Here in Holland it costs €2643 that's about $3451!!!
Best deal i found for now is on Pumaspeed:
This one: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/BRAND-NEW-GE...e:Volvo|Model:C30&hash=item1c2ce3d40a&vxp=mtr
That is the place I've been talking to Kova and FREE SHIPPING! Just making sure they have the best deal before I make any transactions. George you have a PM.
They haven't started to make K16 turbos in China yet..be aware of? not a original borg warner but china build or what do you mean?
Lets see what George can do for me $$ wise 1st I have a GT so I'm chatting with some folks in South Africa digging up some info on a V50 auto running a stock gearbox with a large cooler. He apparently has been abusing it for a few months without issue so we'll see! There is always Level 10 in the event of a failure but thats some more coin to consider. Fact is, there will be a K16 sitting on my workbench soon.. . . . It will be the fastest Volvo in western PA
It was a very shady situation with the ebay guy. The site states they have 10 and thats what was what was relayed to me the 1st time I called and 20 minutes later when I called back they only had 1 in stock! He also was trying to pressure me on the sale which was odd. So either they are not completely honest or somebody from Croatia bought 9 turbos in the 20 minutes I was off the phone!Good choice going with George!
Ebay guy didn't even answer my question about wrong turbo on his K16 page..
