any suggestions? was thinking midland turbo.. they seem quite competitive? for a K04
CR turbos seem to be the go to guys
CR turbos.. cool il give them a bell tomorrow..you used them before?
Turbo Dynamics very good
cool stuff..have you used them?/ what kinda prices/turnaround.. basically my new forged engine is going to be fitted this week sometime and i need my turbo back to its former glory!
I've not used them yet, but I will be. They were prompt in replying to my email and very helpful, I believe the price for hybrid-ing my K04 (if I supplied them with my K04) was about £550 and the turn around was 4-5 days. I believe Welly and Speedy Steve used them for their hybrids.
ahh man id love to go hybrid but i cant afford to right now but i need to have this turbo rebuilt.. il give them a ring in the morning as well compare some prices.. the only thing is both of them are in like dorset! i live in birmingham =/
sorry to seem ignorant lads but whats involved in rebuilding a turbo and what is a Hybrid ?
hybrids as i understand it are standard turbos that are modified to increase boost/performance by way of porting and using bigger compressors/turbines in the standard housing .. overhauls are as they say on the tin.. stripping the turbo of its components and replacing with new bearings/seals/compressors/turbines etc etc i presume! dont take my word as gospel though im just guessing here
Thats why CR Turbos send a courier to pick up your turbo and then they deliver it back to you when done.... its that simple... you just need to box it securly and they do the rest... I had my GT30 rebuilt by CR.... excellent service IMO which is also why Badger Bill uses them...
CR turbos FTW
I got mine done from CR Turbos. Perfect.
CR done mine too, great job and a pleasure to deal with, definitely the way to go IMO.
Just out of interest, what are the ballpark figures to exchange for a reconditioned turbo from CR Turbos? Or have all of you gone for hybrids?
Think an OEM turbo recon is around the £500 mark... I think.
Put my hand round the turbo today and got oil over my had so i may be in need of a recon. Need to get the car in the and get a closer look but fearing the worst
i swear they said £170 to recondition my old turbo at midland turbo..
getting the thing off on monday and then il ring round and get some quotes
That's a pretty big difference.
Big difference indeed!
Had my car on axle stands today, couldn't see a damn thing
Looks like it will be at the specialist soon
i will post my results on here tomorrow evening with regards to pricing
That would be great dude :icon_thumright:
indeed,the transfer box as well as many other things need to be removed before even touching the turbo.....not nice at all.
Think i will leave that to the specialist! Want to know what's leaking, its killing me
Noggy.......I didn't overtake you on the M27 a few months back and follow you down into Southampton did I??
Hmmm...!? Maybe! My girlfriend lives in Drayton so possibly.
Know of any meets down near you mate :icon_thumright:
