I had my S300 rebuilt and turned into a 66mm for 600.00 but probably got a discount . i cant imagine more than 600-700 for a rebuild .

I had my S366 rebuilt by high tech for 300 dollars. That was for new bushings only, if the wheels need to be replaced then obviously it would be more.

Thrust play is a no no. If there hasn't been any contact yet it will be much less. I would say around $300

If Industrial did it with new wheels and shaft it would be 700-800. I would think it could
Be done for as little as 500.

S Phinney. how do you like the Silver Bullet Turbo from industrial? Was it a direct bolt in?

If its a 66/74 you can buy a whole new t4 turbo for 900 and put your housings on it if theyre telling you 1000. High tech would probably sell you a cartridge for 700. Thats what mine cost.

Heres the T4 charger: http://www.diesel-plus.com/dd_turbo.cfm?npid=7248

We can get you whole cartridges for cheaper than that, as has been said a rebuild should be about $300 as long as there hasn't been contact with the housings and the wheels are in god shape.

I just had my S400 gone through with new bearings adn rebalanced and it cost 125 plus parts which was a little over 250 total.

It's a t-3 turbo so you need the after market pedestal but it is a good turbo. You can pull anything but it takes a bit of fuel to make it happy. I make around 700hp on it and it has good daily driving characteristics.

I had new bushings and regrind the shaft, for 600.00 from HTT. BUT I wanted to upgrad to the SS turbine housing, so HTT gave me a whole new turbo for 1000.

specialagentPK 09-18-2009 09:11 PM

I rebuilt my HTT myself for $250 in parts for a complete rebuild kit. Like it has been said as long as the wheels haven't made contact with the housing you are ok.

Check with Alamo Turbo in Edmonton or Calgary. Not my preference because they were A-holes to me, but they can rebuild a BW.
