Default Turbo rebuild service - $75. Twin Cities, MN

I am offering a turbo rebuilding service for the flat rate of $75 dollars. You pay to ship it to me, I pay to ship it back to you.

The rebuild includes new:
-Seals
-Bearings
-Thrust collar
-C-clip
-Snap rings
-Bolts

The turbo is not rebalanced, it is simply put back in the exact same orientation that it came out in, negating the requirement to get it balanced. If you want it balanced I can have it done, but it will obviously cost more money.

If you need your compressor/turbine wheels replaced, I can do that aswell. Depending on the type of turbo, it will cost roughly 250 dollars, but that's including the service above aswell. It will also take longer because the turbo will have to be balanced.

First 3 people get the service get it done for 50 dollars to build some reputation.

EDIT: Note I changed the price to 75. Still very fair, but 15 bucks turnaround for me wasn't quite enough for my liking
EDIT2: This is for Garrett turbos and their knockoffs only, sorry.

Oh my bad. You must have ninja edited that

I'm pretty sure thats the kit I used on my turbo. Still going strong after 2 years. I paid 85 bucks for my kit though, they've gone down a lot.

Yeah I've heard good things about them and they're cheaper than the g-pop shop or whatever it is kit.

Thanks for the props.

Also note: All three spots are taken. Any beyond this is at regular price, so 75 dollars.
