    Do you guys think $265.xx for a complete rebuild on a 42/48 turbo is decent.

    Then 110 for an upgrade to a 60 trim wheel and housing?

    I'm asking because I can get another 42/48 cheap as hell...like 50 bucks.

    So the total would be $425 for a freshly rebuilt 60/48 T3.

    honestly,i think it is...you want your turbo to be in the best shape it can be...theres no point in getting a totally different one,when thats the one u had your mind set on using in the first place..and plus its a pretty good turbo..u can make some good power on it,and it has a good spool speed...i say keep it...shell out the money (its a lot i know,but this is our hobby)...get it rebuilt...and start putting down some power..cus i know your tired of making threads cus luck doesnt fall your way.


    good luck man,hope u get everything right,and make some vids.

    yea.. my rebuild was successful. Just not the center housing. I can't seem to break it loose. If I keep it the way it is it's going to blow the seals again.

    I wanted good spool, thats why I'm going with the 48 housing. I can get the 60 trim wheel and housing cheap and just upgrade this turbo since it is freshly rebuilt but I need to find a way to get the housing to rotate.

    I'll make some vids, maybe one after I get the overheating problem fixed. It's semi-impressive.

    it's "spooledmotorsports" and it looks like they don't have any new/rebuilt units anymore.

    But for 150 you can have mine, needs a backing plate and to rotate the exhuast housing
