    They are not what they used to be. Torspd has them tiered correctly IMO and I own/run a Precision.

    What actually has made them go down a tier? Is their technology or quality dropping or is it another aspect?

    It isn't that they've gone down. It is that they haven't gone up yet. Good advertising gets the name out, but word of mouth lets you know that they don't carry the same longevity as the higher quality brands. Good entry level performer for sure. Are they continually improving? Yes. They are scaling up just as the other brands are. They haven't broken into the OEM realm yet though. Once they do that, then they are at the top with the other brands.

    I think they just have the tungsten electrode in the mig gun. I don't hear the wire feed running.

    Definitely seems like they are trying to up the anti giving huge turbo setups to basically any show on discovery

    Very likely. As the tip was glowing at the end of the video, and had a simila
    Marketing primarily.

    Don't see that with the others though. Hmmm....

    In my own experiences, I have been through three Precision turbos already. All journal bearing, but they only ever lasted a few years, before needing a rebuild. Sadly.

    Which ones are failing and what seems to be the weakness?

    Tolerances. Which generally play a factor in the higher turbine speeds. I.E. higher boost levels.

    So basically if you are going to run the piss out of a turbo you better get a nice one.
