Default clocking a TE05

i got a te05 12b for free this turbo is in perfect condition minimal side play and no in and out i actually think it was recently rebuilt because there is still writing on the inside of the compressor housing, and it was pulled from a 134,000 mile car. i can get the compressor housing off, it's just a snap ring. but the turbine and whole center section won't budge. any experiance would be helpful. If it comes to it i'll soak it in oil for a few days and see what happens. thanks guys.

In my experience, reclocking a used turbo almost always requires heating the housing up with a torch. Usually if you just unbolt the exhaust side and heat it up it doesnt take much effort to spin it around and remove the exhaust housing,

Agreed. Any turbo (Except new out of the box) is a massive bitch to move. Like you will pound on the thing until you've thought you've broken it 5 times, and then it will budge a bit, and you just keep going along those lines. Took me quite a while to get my T25 unseated.

Yes I have done this many times before. Most recently I just picked up Savington's old turbo and took the exhaust housing off so I could get the face milled flat.

The key here is HEAT. You NEED a torch. If you sit there with pb blaster you will be pounding all day to get that thing off. Ive done that in the past and ruined a T25 like 10 years ago when the exhaust housing was angled when I was pounding it and the fins got bent.

Oxy-acetylene torch is your friend here.

I just used a hammer on all of the turbos I took apart, which is probably close to 30 of them. But make sure the compressor housing is still attached or you will damage the wheel.

And just thought I would mention that turbo is a waste of time, but good luck.

I put mine in the bench vice and heated it with a heat gun. Then after about 10 smacks with a rubber mallet I was good to go.

that te05 turbine housing will be laggy, do you already have a manifold for it?

x2 on PB blaster and a BFH. I let my T25 sit over night with generous PB Blaster, then beat the crap out of it with a brass mallet. Took 4 hits for it to pop.

i don't actually, i was just going to make a log style. This going to be a pretty low budget build. that turbine housing looks really small, i can't imagine it lagging to bad. i can't actually find any specs online for it that are in english.
