If you just want yours rebuilding mate, then have a look in the members discounts section. Turbo dynamics should give you a good deal.:cheers:

Turbo Dynamics have quote 995 to 1300 quid!!

Surely it would be cheaper to actually buy a new turbo?

Surely I can get it reconed for less than that? if not why in the name of Allah would anyone want to get them reconditioned when they can buy a new one for same price?? crazy money!

A recon turbo is pretty much a new turbo as it will have a whole new core and other bits, the only original thing normally left is the housings which are machined out and cleaned so look new anyways.

Turbo technics are normally the cheapest, give them a try.

If your going to buy a big turbo you will need a ecu aswell to run it safe. You need to think what you want out of the car for the future. If you just want a basic rebuilt turbo to run around 350-360 bhp later on, then you can pick them up for around £600. Which has standard size wheels (Metal) and a new core. Most 400bhp rebuilds have machined compressure/exhaust housings, bigger compressure and exhaust wheels, machined wastegate hole with bigger penny gate and new core. Lots of companies can do this for you. But don't be fooled by people claiming that there standard rebuilds can produce 450+, the size of the exhaust housing will not allow this. So don't waste yor money on them.
