The guy I had my turbo rebuilt by, said anything less than a grand for a new turbo will just be cheap Chinese junk.

Depending on what you want to do with your old turbo, repair or repair and upgrade, you would be looking in the $800-1500 range. I had a 2nd hand turbo rebuilt and upgraded with billet wheels for $1100.

old bus has got 400k on it and is leaking a little bit of oil (which it has done for about 150 000km) around the turbo so its probably time for a birthday.

other than changing the rear diff for another out of a donor nav Ive got stashed in the back paddock everything else is original.

cheers.

Jacko.
Hi Jacko.

I only recently fitted a Forefront turbo on our 2004 ZD30 and so far, I can't fault it.
Definitely more responsive down low as they advertise and for $800, I really think you can't go wrong.

Just my opinion though mate.

Cheers,
Rusty.

I run my Forefront at 21 psi and haven't blown it up - he doesn't recommend that much boost. Done 50 000 km.

How did you go about increasing it? Was it difficult?

Hey Rumpig,
I have mine set at 18.
Don't the ZD30's have a boost over pressure limit, or do you think I could get away with a little more?
Cheers,
Rusty.

I had a manual boost controller on it but his turbo comes with an adjustable end on the wastegate controller.

Ecu cuts the fuelling above 18 psi till you back off and get on it again.
