Yes they are. However a turbo that size would be a deathblow for your stock motor.

I think you just answered your own question. Don't be cheap, if you are going to be cheap, then you shouldn't be doing the upgrade. Go with a well known, reputable manufacturer, they make the "reliable" turbos you speak of.

If it's a high mileage car, just about any turbo upgrade will kill the motor.
