While I prefer the larger compressor housing and full TD04 CHRA that MMPs use, there is definitely a market for stock size compressor housings and 'mixed flow' whels.

Just don't try and tell everyone that Frankenturbos are the same as the ones for $650 on Alibaba/Aliexpress.
I have MMP's, I am just saying these are the basis of his turbos. They will sell you literally whatever OEM setup you want and will also machine them out for larger TD03 compressor/turbine housings (Candy still emails me every month or so trying to sell me turbos, haha). CHRA's look pretty similar to the Chinese version as well.

No clue on quality or longevity, just sharing info.
