Where to get 6.0 turbocharger parts

Where to get 6.0 turbocharger parts
Hello,

Today when I was working on my truck ('04 6.0 - early model) I found that the turbocharger compressor vanes were chipped on the edges. The bearings are going out of it so I need to rebuild it. I have found the rebuild kit from gpopshop.com but I can't find anyone that sells the compressor wheel.

Does anyone know where to get a new compressor wheel/vane set up for the early 6.0

I found one - bullseye batmowheel, but from what I have read it doesn't seem to be what I am looking for.

Thanks for your help!

Just so you are not confused, there are no vanes on the compressor side, those are blades. The vanes are the small movable pieces on the turbine side.

You probably can buy the parts from a local shop depending where you live and how quick you want it, or on-line from Diesel USA Group. OEM Turbochargers and Accessories. for Garrett. However, why not upgrade to a better turbo? MTW (Adrian) stage 1, Majestic (the first MTW) stock turbo upgrade? or a site sponsor. The cost will be not much more than a stock rebuild. If you wanted, you could get your comp housing machined and put on this from eBay. 6 0 Powerstroke Turbo Compressor Wheel Upgrade Stage 1 | eBay

You could also look for a LLY or LMZ for a duramax and use that with your turbine section. Last week there was a rebuild on eBay for $400 complete. Usually they go for about 750-900. Lots of options depending on your ability and imagination.

You need the ability to balance the assembly after repairs. Not just anyone can accomplish this easily, sucessfully. Better left to the experts.

Sent from my phone that somebody didn't help me get.

I wouldn't mess around with a rebuild kit. You're going to end up doing the job twice only the second time around it's going to be the price of a new turbo.
