Default Turbo Rebuild service

Hey guys I need the oil seals on my T25 done as it's blowing a ton of oil through the exhaust side, does anyone know a good place to send it to for a rebuild. Thank you!

mark the postion the wheel gets put back on the turbine shaft. If you keep it in the same spot it wont need balancing.


ahhh...see here (you need to read more!):

Before pulling the wheels off, even before touching the nut on the shaft, mark the position of the wheels relative to each other. You'll have to assemble them in the exact same position later to preserve the balance.

Also Garrett balances their turbine shafts independently from their comp wheels...No worries, I also have swapped comp wheels w/ no problems...

I've had three different compressor wheels on this turbine shaft without problems.
