TN BB's still in operation?

Are these things still out there? I'm thinking about selling mine, is it worth anything? I don't come here much anymore, but I recall lots of drama about these turbo's.

I have one from the first in-house batch made. Forget what mileage it was put on (think low 150's) but it's been a couple years now and my truck has almost 180k on it. So it's been on for 25k +/- towing miles. Never had any problems with it and my only complaint is fuel mileage dropped across the board a few mpg with it's install.

Best advice I have seen on here "If you cant afford to build it right you certainly cant afford to build it twice"

Had mine for around 15k IIRC, and sold it to another guy, and it is still working fine.
