Should I rebuild the Turbo and which kit?

Hey Guys,

I was installing NC Hornets CCV Mod (Great BTW!) the other weekend and got a good look at my compressor wheel. Its defiantly had a little damage done. It was stock intake for the first 160k miles and has been a DIY with S&B filter for the past 50k.

Pict of the wheel...



My question is, I am planning on rebuilding the HPOP and Fuel Bowl for general maintenance as well as trying to find a little oil leak up there. While I am at it should I just re-build the turbo as well and get a new compressor wheel? Its just a little more $$ and time and since Ill be taking a lot of parts off it will be easy to get to.

Also, after doing some research, how I have seen some guys selling kits on ebay that say to send in your turbo to them to get it balance after you have done the rebuild. How important is that? I only have seen this recommendation on ebay. Also, which rebuild kit do ya'll recommend for the Early 99 PSD's? I was looking at Guzzle's website as was thinking about going with his kit here. There are lots of kits out there so a little direction is appreciated.

Pict of the rig...



THANKS!!!
Paul

As far as the balancing part it is very important but most compressor wheels you buy are pre balanced, and I would rebuild it while you have it out especially if you have any shaft play or its burning oil, bdpshop.com has a rebuild kit for $125.00

Anytime I need a rebuild kit or orings, it'll be guzzle's store.
If you're doing general maintenance, do the HPOP and associated lines, and fuel bowl like you said. Depending on how far you wanna go, you can do the oil cooler, dip stick oring, turbo pedestal orings and EBPV orings or just delete the EBPV. If the turbo is fine other than the compressor, I'd leave it on.

Thanks for the replies guys. Ill probably just end up rebuilding the turbo since I am there.

Regarding the oil cooler, dip stick oring, turbo pedestal orings and EBPV orings, are those all something that Guzzle sells? I didnt even think of those.

Thanks!

Every single one. He does all the common stuff. He has a master kit with em all in there.
Idk if I'd rebuild the turbo though. Don't know how hard it is.
