Lots of reputable merchants have E-Bay stores, and those are usually some of the cheapest prices you'll find online. Half of the parts on my Integra came from E-Bay, but it was all NAME BRAND and it was all BRAND NEW (AEM, Tokico, etc.). Just make sure you're buying from E-Bay stores that look legit and have excellent customer satisfaction ratings (95% or better is what I look for, and most of them are more like 99% or 100%). I typically won't buy anything that's not brand name either.

If you choose to buy used from E-Bay though, or to buy from a store with crappy ratings, or to buy stuff that seems too good to be true (like a "JDM" header for $30 or a "brand new" turbo for $100), or a brand name that you've never heard of before, then don't be surprised if your awesome new parts turn out to be junk. These are the types of things that we refer to as "E-Bay brand", and that's where the bad reputation comes from.

You could sum it up as this: It's fine to buy shit from E-Bay, but PLEASE don't buy any "E-Bay shit"!

EDIT: I should also mention, the E-Bay stores that I buy from all use the "Buy it Now" option, meaning they don't have you bid, they just tell you what the price is, and you pay decide whether to pay it. Pretty much the same as buying from a non-E-Bay car parts site. The legit sellers use this because they are drop shippers and they're interested in selling in large quantities (just like the other parts websites). If an E-Bay seller wants you to bid on new parts, I would look for a different seller or website...
i got my headers and full exhaust from ebay been almost a year no problems out of niether one of them except for the installation on them lol had too do some welding buh all came out well so i look on ebay too because ive been tryin too stray away from them

Just a thought...

EDIT: And just to clarify, when I say name brand name, I don't necessarily mean like a Greddy or A'pex kit. Greddy and A'pex do make kits, and one of those would be fine if you've got the dough to drop, but I'm meaning buy a complete kit from a company that has a good reputation for assembling and selling kits (Full-Race, turbokits.com, etc.). And stay far away from the no-name "full" turbo kits on E-Bay for $500, lol.
ok so a turbo kit from turbokits.com is like $2700 O.O holy!! #@$%$% ummm lol yea thats gonna be atleast like 5k right there in the engine

Eeek, yeah, I'd stay away from that if I were you. Sounds like you could get in some trouble. Even just associating with people who do that stuff could get you in hot water.

Just my opinion though...

That sounds like a pretty good list!

As for where to buy them at decent prices:

Wastegate: http://motors.shop.ebay.com/i.html?_...l+mv-s&_sacat=

Bunch of them on there, brand new, Buy it Now pricing, and free shipping.

Blow-Off Valve: http://motors.shop.ebay.com/i.html?_...506.m270.l1313

Fuel Pump: http://motors.shop.ebay.com/i.html?_...506.m270.l1313

Intercooler: http://motors.shop.ebay.com/i.html?_...506.m270.l1313

Like I said, if you buy from there, I only buy brand new parts from the "Buy it Now" ones with fixed pricing, and make sure the seller has very high ratings. A lot of those have free shipping too, which is nice. If you don't end up buying from E-Bay sellers, you can at least get some ideas on pricing. A lot of drop shippers use E-Bay to sell in volume, so the cheapest prices are usually there. Use it as a baseline so you know you're not getting ripped if you buy from somewhere else...
