Which company for turbo overhaul ??

Postby DavieBow » Fri 23.12.2016, 11:07

Hi Guys ,
Which company do you guys recommend for a overhaul of my turbo , there's technically nothing wrong with it at the moment but I've just fitted an Everest chip plus going to get a new exhaust so want to get the wastegate ported so I think whilst it's out I might as well get it overhauled/ hybridised / balanced etc , more for my own piece of mind than anything else .
I will be taking the engine out and renewing all oil seals , sensors , hoses etc so want to make sure whilst it's out I refurb / replace as much as possible .

I'm pretty sure I saw a thread on here where a guy was trying to get above the 200bhp mark who recommended a company to do the turbo but for the life of me I can't find it anywhere now .

So who do you guys use / recommended ?

Cheers
Dave

Dave,
Don't buy this until someone else confirms this is the correct part but I know some on here have fitted this and its a good price compared to the £750 my turbo overhaul cost me at Turbo Technics.

So what does that part actually do and why is it a better option than getting your existing turbo overhauled ??

Cool thread and well done to you for having the balls to do all that , if i go for one of those new cores , how easy/difficult would it be to fit myself, baring in mind i'm about as mechanically skilled as a frog .......oh and if something can be broken....i will break it :lol: :lol:
