I'm complete new to turbo stuff, I just blindly bought this turbo off of a guy in this forum. It was $145 shipped, and seems like it was pretty good deal.
Even if it wasn't I wanted to get my hands on one of them and play with it for learning purposes.
When I received it, serial number of off turbo read 14411-50f00. After quick google it seems like it's a turbo off of Japanese S13 redtop SR20DET.
Size wise T25<T25G<T28
I'm planning on doing a rebuild on the turbo and use it when the time comes, it might be awhile but it'll be fun learning experience.
I went ahead and disassembled the turbo today
I have couple question for the pros, I've read people rebuilding these with ebay kits, are there different quality kits?
I'm thinking about getting this one from amazon, good choice? any recommendations?
Also what is the best way to clean the wheels? CHRA housing?
Please share your knowledge, educated me, and lead me to right directions.
thanks in advance
Threads are worthless w/o pics, right? here are some pics :thumbs:
