Why Rebuild / FAQ
Why should I rebuild instead of buying a new turbocharger?
In the process of rebuilding, we hold the machining, tolerances, and most importantly the balancing more precisely than the original equipment manufacturer. Our replacement parts have no planned obsolescence and are of superior quality. Lastly, the price for a rebuilt turbocharger is significantly lower, and the performance as good or better, than a new one.
What are some symptoms indicating I might need to rebuild my turbocharger?
-Black or blue exhaust smoke
-Loss of power
-Excessive oil consumption
-Excessive whining noise
-Oily substance accumulating on turbine side (exhaust end)
-Oil loss on compressor end
**NOTE: Before removing a turbocharger, check for engine "blow by". If blow by is present, you MAY NOT NEED to replace the turbocharger. Need help in how to check for blow by? Contact us for assistance.
