Considering how much it costs to pull the engine out, I would be putting in the best possible parts I could find. If you buy cheap turbos and they fail 20,000 miles later, you're out another $3,000 to pull the engine to replace them again. You won't save money by buying cheap parts, especially something as labor-intensive to work on as a V10 TDI.
