Many Chinese manufacturers, such as the Fengcheng Xindongli Turbocharger Company and Refone Auto Power Company, build inexpensive turbocharger upgrade kits. These kits are often sold under different brand names or with no specific brand name, or are sold as "house brands" by tuning shops.
Many tuners find that inexpensive Chinese-made turbochargers have serious issues with reliability and longevity as compared to more expensive turbochargers made by better-known manufacturers. A malfunctioning turbocharger can cause serious damage to an engine and may pose a safety hazard. However, not all users of inexpensive Chinese turbocharger kits have experienced serious issues, and many owners find the quality of these systems acceptable given their low cost.
