Hi all

since my turbo began smoking when cold i thought i would buy a
nice rebuild kit. Should be garrett after all? Then i found out i have a
big shaft turbo which seems to limit me to Turbonetics rebuild kits.

It is a T04E 50 trim (Journal bearing)

So, Turbonetics is asking 162$, which seems way too much for this little
"kit"




Which other options do i have? Do not get me wrong, i do not mind spending
$ on quality parts, and i will not cheap out. None the less 162$ seems just too much! Any reputable shops known that ship to Europe? (Or located in Europe)?

I got the exact Turbonetics rebuild kit you need here for a 60-1 I was gonna use on my turbo build...but decided against using it.

I just got a kit off ebay. If I remember right it was around $80. Came with the 360 degree "upgraded" thrust bearing (I believe that's what it is called).

Really, which one did you order? When searching i just come up
with this one:

DSM 16G 18G 20G BIG SHAFT TD05 TD06H TURBO REBUILD KIT | eBay

And it somehow does not read right because i do not have a td05.
I need to get to the car and measure the actual diameter of the shaft.

Anything known about the quality of those China/eBay rebuild kits?

I may as well buy the kit right from you, but i am super curious if
i am missing something in my search? :-|
