Default Wold Turbos?

Anyone ever heard of the brand Wold? I was searching around and see them offered in a 65 and 68 VGT. Powdered cover and limited lifetime warranty. For a pretty dang competitive price point.

Wold Fab? I've heard nothing but bad about them. Guy here in WI that I pull with had a 68vgt he bought and had nothing but problems including stuck vanes out of the box.

I had my LBZ exhaust housing cnc ported by Tom Wold, ceramic coated, and running his high flow vanes. Quality was top notch and turn around time was quick fwiw

I had never heard if them until recently. Was told that all in performance uses them quite frequently with good results. All I'd ever use for vgt is mark.

He's local to me and know him personally. Lots of guys around Minnesota run his Turbos and I haven't heard any problems with them. I believe he offers a life time warranty on them...

He does offer a lifetime warranty on them. That’s what caught my eye.

Tuned several of them. They have been performing as advertised. Not to mention rather easy to dial in.

Well with you two vouching for them I may use one on a friends lbz that wants a bigger vgt. If he goes that route blake will know The prices arent bad at all and hes on a bit of a budget and lifetime warranty is a huge plus.

That only thing I can say is if you have issues with it, Iím not to sure how their warranty or customer service is. Sometimes the reason you pay more for certain things is for the support/warranty obviously. So I canít vouch for them on that. But let me know when your ready for tuna my friend

I literally just tuned one in person last week. LLY and it was a 3794 68mm and I was impressed how it responded with very conservative tip in adjustments even on stock fuel at 4600ft.
