Default Turbo Rebuild Kit

I got a turbo rebuild kit that I ended up not needing. I decided to take couple of pics, maybe this will help ofthers that are wondering if it's safe to buy a kit, or which to buy.
The one I have is labeled Kamak and I bought it through Kando Dynamic.
It's for a TD05, TD06 16G and 18G.
Here's an overview:










Following, I am comparing dimensions and shapes with parts from a known Mitsubishi Turbo.

Red Kamak, Black Mitsu, this is the compressor cover gasket.

Cartridge trust plate. Flat Kamak, shiny Mitsu.
They claim to have an extra heavy duty trust bearing. If you look at a drawing that shows how everything goes together, you'll see that the trust bearing is bigger with Kamak, a different style altoghether.







The washer that goes with this plate.. Kamak is the shiny. Although the flange is wider, Im measuring the "stem" thickness and diameter.







Center bearing assembly. Shiny is Kamak.

Overall, these components look like they could do the job with no problems. There are two nuts as well, one direct, one reverse tread.

Also what makes the thrust bearing "heavy duty" is the oil groove on the back.The Mitsubishi one doesn't have that groove.Nice pics though!I have used that same company as well (Kando Dynamics) for parts.They seem to always have pretty quality stuff.

Awesome I was trying to find a kit. Do you happen to know where to get the turbines? preferrably oversized?

Same place, Kando_dynamic. If you're moving to a TD-06, you'll need a turbine housing as well, which they sell too. You may even have the option of a TD06 7 sq cm or TD06 8 sq cm.
They have some parts that they advertise as Original, and they ship in OEM boxes. You're looking for an OEM Mitsubishi Heavy Industries item, if possible.

I think that the TD-06 may not last as long as a TD-05 though, because the turbine shaft diameter increases from TD-04 to TD-05, but not from TD-05 to TD-06. So the bigger turbine gives more torque on the same diameter shaft, putting more wear on the sleeve bearings.

If you're putting a TD-06 on a 2.0 I'd be curious to see some logs, if you want to post them.

It's old, and I sold my kit meanwhile.
However, here's one of the 'cheap kits" they sell

http://cgi.ebay.com/Turbo-Rebuild-Ki...item3ef765f90b

Here's the "full OEM kit"

http://cgi.ebay.com/Turbo-Rebuild-Ki...item41525118b1

I'm almost sure that we have the superback, not the flat back. I say almost, because I forgot the explanation of the superback meanwhile.
I think it was the back of the compressor impeller though.

How is your rebuild turbo?

How is everything?

Thanks

I sold my kit and bought a beand new FP built CHRA, then used Kando Dynamic housings on it.
It ran nice for a year, generating 300WHP. Then I upgraded to a Twinscroll engine and now I will convert the EVO III to twinscroll.
After 1 year, there's no additional play in the bearings, it's a good unit.

As far as the rest, if you rebuild yourself, end it by sending the unit to be bellanced by a reputable builder. And use the ppropriate oil feed banjos.

^+1 on that the balancing. That and cleanliness of the rebuild are the most important factors. Kamak kits are fine and the parts are OEM made under license.
