Failed turbo's - how to proceed
« on: March 25, 2019, 09:16:27 AM »
Hey guys,

Last week my turbos stopped building boost and then i had some smoke out the exhaust, I knew it wasn't good.
Just got a call from the dealership and they confirmed both turbos are toast and I have a valve cover leak (may explain my recent cyl 3 misfire).
They quoted a ton of dough to replace these items so I'm picking up the car today and I'm going to order the turbos/parts online and hopefully find a good shop to swap them out for me locally here in Puerto Rico.

Anyone familiar with the turbo replacement options?
I see I can get some OEM replacements for $1000 from rockauto or amazon/ebay (Rotomaster/Clevite/CF Power/Stigan).
Any feedback on these manufacturers?

Looks like I can also a CR Performance rebuild kit for $580 or a upgraded CHRA(?) kit for $900.
Maybe thats the way to go? (An upgrade for the same budget would be nice)

Any additional parts I should buy (gaskets/etc related to the turbo replacement)?
I should prob definitely add a catch can to the list, eh?!

What's the shop time for replacing both turbos and/or the valve cover gasket?

Thanks for any suggestions

definitely do all the oil/coolant feed/drain line gaskets and screens/filters.

If the housing/wheels are undamaged, you can benefit from the CHRA upgrade.  If you already have a tune, upgrade the tune.  If you don't have a tune, get a tune.  That's how much difference it will make.

OEM turbos are fairly inexpensive compared to a few years ago.  Prob have to send back cores tho.

6 hrs or so for rear turbo (bank 1), 2 hrs for front (bank 2) turbo.  VC gasket, not sure, probably under 2 hrs?  Some idea can be had from the valve cover replacement TSB.

Check/drain your intercooler.  That will tell you if a catch can is needed for your car or not.

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!
