profesionall turbo rebuild????

Question first-is it worth the $ to get a turbo profesionally rebuilt? And if so who would you suggest?

Im lookin real hard at getting a 03 turbo for my 05. No reason other than I like the sound. It now looks like I might have found a used turbo. I have NEVER tryed to do a rebuild but I have watched the video on U tube. So what is ur thoughts? Thanks

A basic rebuild is fairly easy. Most often you only need the kit, bushings, o-rings and ring seals. The problem is knowing when to throw in the towel and upgrade to a new/better turbo. If you have to change wheels the cost goes up - they usually ship them balanced as a set. If not, the parts are fairly well piece balanced if you can't get them pair balanced locally. Need vanes and ring? The cost goes up. New CHRA or housings and you might as well upgrade.

So i have an 03 with a little in and out play, no damage at all just the play, problem is its to much play for me to feel comfortable running it, i was quoted 250 to rebuild it, could i do it myself? Never dove into one beyond vane cleaning and batmowheel install. I'm qualified to do the job if i don't need any specialty tools such as a balancer or something like that. Thoughts?

If you have already done the comp wheel change, you are already as deep as you need to do the bushings. If you lightly push out the shaft, it will slide right out. Followed by the bushing, spacer and bushing. You may need to take the backing plate off if you are changing out the oil seal bearing. Measure the shaft and look for signs of wear, but the bushings are usually all that is worn.
