Default Sweet deal for turbo rebuilds I found!

eBay My World - johnsmith04shop

If you buy a rebuild kit for $80, he'll balance your rotating assembly for free, you just pay shipping. Ill have my stuff back from him in a couple days, ill report back how it looks!

The rebuild kit looks just like the g pop shop kit, just without the fancy molded tray to hold the parts.

isnt balancing a really time consuming tedious task? why would he offer to do it FREE?

sounds fishy, he just might say he did and not do a thing and return it haha

but if its true, sounds like a hell of a deal

Its not so time consuming and tedious if thats all you do, day in and day out (well yes tedious, I couldn't do it and stay sane). Sounds like a good deal if he knows what he is doing. There are some fly by night operations out there that probably don't do a very good job, lets hope he isn't one of them.

He has 5000+ and 100% positive feedback. I'd give him the benefit of the doubt.

It looks like he only balances the wheels. Doesn't the whole assembly need to be balanced or will just the wheels be good enough?

Guys, not only did he balance it, but he cleaned it really good too! He did a great job, if you are going to rebuild your turbo id HIGHLY recommend him!
