    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.

    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...

    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.

    indeed,the transfer box as well as many other things need to be removed before even touching the turbo.....not nice at all.
