Most probably journal bearings. I'm already thinking of an upgrade when it needs a turbo after it's out of warranty. It would be nice if a variable vane turbo could be retrofitted without too much modification.

I think it's a Garrett GT14 from what I've seen on the Internet.

Here are some great shots of the turbo from all angles, no real information just pics of the turbo and manifold.

Looks kind on the small side even compared to the 84 hot air Buick turbo I had.

I wonder what all it would take to retrofit that cute little turbine onto my 1.3L V4 motorcycle?

Given the size of the thing I doubt much, but the size leaves little room to make things bigger.
