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 starts at $65. We have state of the art balancing equipment, including industry standard low speed equipment for component parts and rotating assemblies, plus VSR for both medium and high speeds and oil pressure testing. The VSR service also includes an exact data printout of the balancing process, so we can provide hard-copy results if needed. 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 filled out in the box.
