Not everything made in China is garbage. Most large companies use China for just about everything nowadays. Once you have good QA/QC controls they can manufacture just about anything and really well too.

Very interested. From what I've seen so far it seems to be a potential top dog

Perhaps they have someplace stateside that assembles them but I doubt the components are manufactured here. Then again, what do I know could be wrong.

Your query wasn't very clear. "made" can mean "put together" or "manufactured". Be specific.

"The turbo parts are manufactured and assembled here in the USA or just assembled here?"

I agree, it's the company's oversight that matters. iPhone is arguably the best mass produced piece of hardware out there which is made in China.

And their answer of "product" was not very clear either. I'm not convinced as of now.

I do appreciate EQT telling me straight up they have them made in Taiwan.

Its made in Taiwan. Not all things made overseas and trash and not all good things made in the USA are good. I mean, Look at Trump.

Really dude? I'm so sick of hearing people bash Trump especially when he is doing the exact opposite of what the mainstream media is brainwashing you into thinking he's doing.

There is talk that EQT and Tomioka is manufactured at the same location and use the same casting but with different spec'd wheels. It appears though from dynos I've seen that the EQT is the better spec'd one.

It's got a bigger compressor so it makes sense it would have more top end. What doesn't makes sense to me, is the supposedly better low end, which is why I want to see real people dyno numbers. Then again, I'm not the most knowledgeable person on the subject.

Bearings are sourced genuine IHI bearings per EQT. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing. Thoughts?

It's is bad in the sense that they are still IHI bearings so you are not eliminating that point of failure.
