How to Rebuild a Turbo - Part 1 of 2
Rebuilding a td05h 16g turbo. This
process can be applied to many journal bearing turbochargers. :) It definitely comes in handy to
know how to do this when you are in this type of hobby.
4/25/12: Small explanation on the balancing of the rotating assembly since
I get so many comments regarding it. This particular turbocharger, td05h, has its rotating assembly
components balanced separately. This means each individual part (compressor
wheel, turbine wheel/shaft) gets balanced separately. This allows for easy
interchangeability of parts in case they need replacing. This is why I am
able to install a td05 20g wheel on this turbo without having to balance the entire
rotating assembly. THIS IS NOT THE CASE FOR ALL turboS OUT THERE. You need to research whether
your specific turbo (if it's not td05h)
was balanced as an assembly or "component balanced" like I explained above.
I hope this information helps. Good luck in your projects. Stay Boostin'

Here is Mindblowin03's '97 Talon TSI AWD on the local Dynojet. At around 38psi it put
down 562whp 512tq. The car completed a 350mile day + the Dyno runs without an issue.
Hopefully see some track times out of it soon!

Was an amazing Friday for the Turd. Went to the track to just have some fun
and never planed to set any records. I did have a running bet with TJ that
I would beat his 9sec CRX due to the fact that he probably could no hook up
on the fresh cold track. I had totally planed on him beating the Turd so I
could pay for his night of racing. Friday the 13th must be good luck since
we ran our 9.6 to TJ's best of a 10.2@148. Was only $20 on the line.
