I dont know what turbo's you put on your car but all the turbos I know the housing must be made of stainless steel, cast steel, or cast iron due to the fact that they have to withstand up to 1200 degrees coming from a high out put engine.

if you do see a turbo housing made of aluminum be sure to tell me so i will remember not to invest in it.
