$400 isn't bad at all.

Most td05's for 20g's that I see sell for somewhere around 250-300. And those are 10+ years old and aren't freshly rebuilt.

yeah true, but to me its hard to justify putting $400 into a stock turbo, if i had a FP or gt35 type of turbo that wouldnt be bad,

but i see all these rebuild kits on the internet mostly ebay for td05s for about 50-80

sounds like the one of the main differences is they have balancing machine, and since its a smaller turbo it cant be too out of wack, unless i bent a fin. but i dont think so.


so the way i look at it is:

spend 400$ and get it done professionally, and balanced,
or
spend 50$ and get it done by myself and unbalanced, if it works than YEH for me, if not then ill get it done professionally, but its worth a shot.

right? input? or anyone know where to get a nice rebuild kit.

I've rebuilt TD04s on older Mitubishis and Dodge Colts with the $50 kits. Assumung no damage, if you mark the wheel positions before you disassemble and then reassemble to the marks - your gonna be quite close on the balance.

Do you know what is wrong with your turbo. Are you able to identify bad parts vs good ones? Are you able to precisely measure the center housing bore and hone and use oversize bearings if necessary? I have worked at a turbo shop for 8 years and I have seen many people try to rebuild their own turbos only to end up with more problems than they started with. Also balancing is EXTREMELY important! the slightlest imblance can easily destroy your turbo and throw parts of the compressor blades into your engine. Good luck!

Cool, I work at an auto parts store and many people try to fix their own car and some fail as well, but most succeed..

Also, you can always rebuild the turbo then send the chra to a shop to have it balanced. It's normally around $50.00

What exactly is bad about it? Bad bearings, bad seals, damaged fins,spooling issues, issue with coked oil.

Whats wrong with it. If your going to buy a rebuild kit it makes certain assumptions about the condition of your turbo. If you don't give more details about whats wrong no-one can really give you good advice about what to do.

I've also seen poorly rebuilt turbos go bad (once again) but never parts back in the engine. How do they get back in the engine? The downpipe?

If something on the compressor side fails, then the get sucked into the motor.

The compressor side also happens to be the side made from soft aluminum. That side also has a nut to bolt the wheel to the shaft. Far more to go wrong on the intake side of the unit.

At one time you could get rebuild kits off ebay. The kit would include a balance all you have to do was send it in they would balance and mark it then send back. I bought one because I thought it would fit a knock off td05 which they dont. Well they kinda do but I didnt feel like machining everything needed to make it work.
