Default TDO4H-15G turbo refurbishment kit?

Hi all,
I have a small oil leak on the exhaust side of my greddy turbo. Does anyone know where I can obtain the parts to refurbish?
Any advice much appreciated, thanks

I also suggest, http://www.turbocity.com/default.php?cPath=47

I was going to do a rebuild by myself also but for $250, they replaced the shaft with a new one, sandblasted the fins, cleaned everything up and made sure the wg was ok. Everything looked like new when i got it back. It also comes with a 90day/4k miles warranty.

For $250 I would buy a rebuild kit, sandblaster including media, and a case of beer. I would end up with a clean badass rebuilt turbo, a really nice media blaster, and a hang over. Glorious.

Chad, does this mean that there will come a time when you'll get drunk on my account? because I'd rather pay you to do it rather than paying someone else FWIW, I get that you find that price too high.

$250 is actually a good price among professional turbo rebuilds. Most companies charge that or more and the warranty they provide is nice. If I absolutely did not want to rebuild my own I would have it done for me.

The guy who bought my last turbo Miata just got the greddy turbo rebuilt by greddy. He sent it into them...it was about $250, and they sent it back to him fully rebuilt...anyone else had it done by greddy themselves? I wasn't aware they did that, but he called them up and got him all taken care of.

We do rebuilds for 275. Basic rebuild is bearing seals, cleaning and balancing. Been rebuilding turbos for 30 years.

thanks for all the input guys
I live in the UK and airshipping a tubby overseas would be pretty expensive, so I've picked up a refub kit from gpopshop.com. $71, thats only about 30 at the current $/ exchange rate. Besides, this is all new to me so it will be interesting to learn how this is done firsthand. Thanks again !
