    new turbo place

    im currently fabricating a new manifold for my z20let as ive decided to go down the tubular manifold with external wastegate route befor my vxr untit packs in . ive roughly decided that i want a garrett gt28rs turbo but on looking at prices of them they vary so much from one place to the next , just wondering where you guys would trust to buy a decent turbo from ?

    Think mine came from Turbo Dynamics, you can get them pretty cheap off US ebay, but personally I'd want to be able to send it back if something went wrong with it.

    Wise words from Scott because people are happy to sell knackered turbos as new/working cheaply.

    Go to a reputable company.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Mine came via Courtenay Sport - pretty sure they are supplied by TD though. You could also Turbo Technics in Northampton, or email Garrett themselves for a supplier list.

    thanks again mate . might be needing it sooner than i thought , herd a suspicious blowing noise coming from manifold . wipped heatshield off and there it was , the birth of a crack !! suppose i could solve it at work like but id still rather have a stainless manifold , there much easier to weld when they crack ..
