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 it's 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'

https://www.eurocarnews.com - Volkswagen AG - The most effective means for reducing fuel consumption is so-called downsizing. By reducing displacement and thereby lowering frictional losses, a lower specific fuel consumption can be achieved, and this goes hand in hand with better efficiency. The innovative path to the future is the combination of Supercharger and turbocharger. The Supercharger compensates for typical drive-off weakness at low revs of purely turbocharged gasoline engines, while the turbocharger really puts out at higher revs. This combination of two types of chargers is unique among engines mass-produced worldwide.

I know the car isn't going very fast but she freaks out easily, the next car will be scary.
These videos will get better, I've just been testing to see if the cars and girls thing would catch on. Don't worry, the cars will get much faster.
