Not sure how much they go for, or if this is what you performance tuners bolt in.

I have up for sale a true Garrett GT22V turbocharger, this turbo came stock on 2.7L Mercedes engines, used in vehicles such as the Sprinter van. After doing some research on this turbo I found out this is a popular upgrade for the VW TDI crowd since it is a VNT turbo. On the sprinter this turbo made 150HP and 300ft/lbs of torque(not surprising, diesels dont make much HP, but a ton of torque) this turbo is also used on an Audi and makes 300HP in that application(that's on a gas engine, not sure if the audi version is any different) my guess judgig by the size is that on a gas engine this turbo would be ideal for engines making in the range of 220-270HP. This turbo has no shaft play and the shaft spins freely, its in good shape, but I got it in trade for some work I did on a friends car, so I cant tell you how many miles are on it...no rebuild needed on this turbo, its in great shape. This would be an awesome turbo with a correct VNT controller setup on a 1.8L engine, almost instant spool with pretty good power capability due to the VNT. You can reach me most times at 615-569-7286 or email me at wicked93gs@yahoo.com

I wonder which is the scammer? Or maybe a plagiarizer?

probably a plagiarizer. The pics that deliveryvalve got were most definitely not the same turbo from the first ad.

Yes actually this turbo in the first ad (grandrapids craigslist) has an electronic actuator. It would be harder to adapt for use on the 617.
Here is the pic taken from craigslist.

The electronic one has a much longer lever, it would be hard to make it work with pneumatic actuators.
