Where to get turbos rebuilt?

03 September 2020 - 08:46 PM

Hey all,

I need to get my TD05H. Checked out. It will need a new compressor wheel and since the engine ate a few bearings and other bits I thought it best to also get the bearings and seals done at the same time.

Who do you recommend and what damage to the wallet can I expect?

Is the core/cartridge replacement for new an easier/cheaper option? What core should I be looking at?

Cheers

Bennie

Cylinder 4 extra cooling mod - heard of this?

29 August 2020 - 11:27 PM

I was doing some facestalking tonight on Mrs El_Freddos account when I came across this apparent mod:

http://shop.getadomt...GTC8UvMopiW_xhY

Is this something legit? Im guessing it would most likely help high boost/prolonged load applications. Seems easy enough to DIY for less than the item listed.

This and parallel fuel rail mod could be good long term insurance to help with longevity with my build.

Thoughts?

Im curious about it - it seems so simple to do I dont see why Subaru didnt do it themselves. And it makes sense - cylinder 4 is the only cylinder that doesnt have coolant constantly bleeding off to something else, other than cylinder 2 that gets the freshest coolant from the water pump.

Cheers
