No dramas, will do. Your cheapest price with tracking will be the express post, as air freight only has local tracking, once it leaves the country there is no more tracking. So $111 postal costs. I'll organise some method of payment and give you the details via Pm. Add the cost of the actual turbo and you're looking at 211AUD.
I'm on Dayshift at the moment, so I won't be able to get it to the post office until Friday, but I figure it will likely take that time for the money to hit, so all good.

I received the Turbo last week.  Only took 5 days to get here from AUS - impressive!

 

I spent about 8 hours installing it this past week.  what a pain in the arse it is!  Much easier once you have done it once though.  Only had a couple small bolts leftover.  I think they are from the hard to reach areas of the heat shields.  Redundant IMO because the shields are tight and doing their job just fine.  Subaru over-engineering.

 

Hopefully I will never have to do one again.  Are the single turbo (WRX etc) easier to replace?  I sure hope so.

 

The moment of truth came Thursday night when I watched the tach climb past 4000.  Very nervous!   But then the boost came on at 5000 RPM!   Works perfectly. 

 

Code 66 solved.  Seized turbo replaced for a reasonable price.   thanks for the help on this one.

Excellent, havent heard bad things about the express EMS postage - got something shipped from the states to australia in 4 days, thought that wasnt bad going for the extra 30 bucks.

 

Good to hear shes working as she should be, and yup, turbo replacements on the gen 3 models are a pain in the arse, although I dont believe the single turbos are much better, dont have to worry about things like the actuator for the ECV and such, but still painful to get too. Hopefully she runs healthily for a long while to come.

 

Cheers,

Ben
