This is not the only example. A similar story was shared in the other TPC is bad thread. When I first posted about my bad turbo, Paul DM'd me and said i should have contacted them first. For what? So they could encourage me to try to cover up my issues?? TPC was in the middle of fucking other people over and giving them the run around, when I found my turbo was bad, so I wasn't going to "work with them".

So here's the problem. This thread probably could have absolutely stayed in a more relevant area and IMO probably belongs there... but the sky is falling, every turbo that TPC sells sucks and is under performing is more than likely a false generalization.

I do feel like there are probably people wronged by a bad batch of turbos and i think that people should research forums and social media for personal experience and make buying decisions based on that.

A bad batch that lasted from 2019 to 2023? And yes, people should research on social media for personal experience to make buying decisions. That's why this thread does not belong in off topic.

I'll even delete my post with my personal opinion of what I think the failure / defect rate is, if that will make the mods happy and get this back on track in a normal forum.
