Check for end play on the turbo shafts..
Always keep in mind the cost of repairs to any second hand turbo?
It could cost way more than new..
Atleast the manifolds come with them and could easy be adapted to T3 flange if you wanted..

Yeah, who knows, it's a gamble. You have to accept that they will be third hand to you as they where originally on a supra (which probably didn't get much love), then on a DIY falcon turbo setup. Who knows what sort or oiling they had or if they looked after them on cool down or if they where running a decent BOV setup. There are no pictures of the compressor or turbine wheel so you have no idea of condition.

If they can supply photos of the wheels in good order and they are cheap enough they might be a bit of fun. If they are ceramic wheels (like Nissan used on skyline etc) they are good up to 12psi, after that they will fail.
