New turbo required

Postby lufc on Sat Jan 12, 2019 2:43 pm

Hi all
Just found out I need a new turbo for my MN Triton.
Mitsubishi have quoted me $4300
I will probably do it myself, my question is what turbo do I buy , surley there are other options , there's heaps on eBay for $500 but not sure what there like .
Cheers

$4300!

So what's actually wrong with it?

Have you considered refurbishment?

From what I've read, the cheapies can be prone to fly apart.

Have a Google for turbo repairs - seem to be lots of joints offering repairs and replacements.

Alternately try a wrecker, might be able to get something to carry you through a couple of years.
