Default Anybody else try ebay turbos?

I bought these turbos off ebay for $150 apiece and have had really good luck with them so far. I did just a basic home-fabbed twin turbo deal with homemade headers and the ebay .63/.50 A/R turbos. I have about 20 1/8th mile passes on the motor so far but Im still tuning, Im looking forward to turning the boost up beyond the 9.5 psi Im at right now. The motor is nothing special, just a fresh 302 using a stock 5.0 block, crank, rods and pistons, a set of home-ported Twisted Wedge 170s and a $125 ebay parker funnelweb. I did the basic ''hanger18'' mods to a Holley 650 to make it blow-thru friendly and use a $60 Spectre carb hat. So far in my 3242lbs fox Mustang I have run 6.29 @ 112.2 MPH in the 1/8th mile. I did this with 9.5 pounds of boost but Im looking to try a few more tunes with as much as 12, maybe 14 pounds of boost, whatever gets me into the 5s. Here is a video of my 6.29 at 112 mph run. Have any of you guys tried these turbos?
