We are frequently asked by customers who purchase our rebuild kits if the turbo will need to be re-balanced after they complete the rebuild. You will not need to have your turbo re-balanced if the following applies:
- Neither of the wheels (compressor and/or turbine) have touched or rubbed the housings
- There are no worn, chipped, or bent fins on either of the wheels
- You were careful to mark the position of the wheels in relationship to each other prior to disassembly and rebuilding, and then realigned these marks upon reassembly
If you aren’t sure if the above applies, or would just feel more comfortable having your turbo balanced, the charge is $65. We do NOT need your complete turbo for this service. We only need your compressor wheel, compressor nut, turbine shaft, and thrust parts, or in some cases we can balance the rebuilt CHRA as a unit (examples are: T3, T4, T3/T4, T25, TD04, TD05, RHB5, K16, and Garrett Ball-Bearing CHRA’s). If you would like to send your turbo to us for this service, please pack it well and send it to us with this form in the box.
