Stock turbo or something close to


looking for a stock turbo or a decent upgrade. My turbo is going out 98k miles.
Shipping to 90247.
Car still has stock converter.

I rebuilt mine with a kit.

Super easy and no special tools.

It was a while ago though, not sure if the kit is still available.

Sorry, I don't, but it would have been from one of the vendors from here or the old site.

Someone here will definitely know if they are still available.

Found this, Bison says to have it balanced. I did not do that and it worked fine, but I didnt know what I was doing back then and just went for it.

Might be cheaper (and safer) to have him do it. I don't want to mislead you.

sharing knowledge with those who care to listen
Bison's work is top shelf. However, Bison is in CT and the OP is in CA. Considering logistics and keeping things simple, I suggest contacting Limit Engineering. Limit does the turbo work for the stock 86-87 TB0348's and TA49's that Kirban's and some other vendors re-sell.

Point of contact is Chopper (Bill Beckman)

they are in Lake Havasu City, AZ 86403
Telephone (928) 453 - 7321

I've got one that has a new center section in it. Let me see if I can put my hands on it.
