so i might buy a 97 tomorrow and he thinks the turbo is junk! he says the turbo doesnt whistle and thinks its noo good so how do i tell if this is correct and wat turbo should i replace it with and price range thanks for all the help
Not sure wat im getting yet hopefully ill kno soon. stil shopping for the right truck
get it to a mechanic and have him check it out. On my stock turbo, exhaust, airbox with the silencer ring in i could barely hear it. If it is bad ya can pick up hx 35's pretty reasonable. or get a used one off one of the forums.
Take the intake hose off and check the shaft for play. Up and down is fine as long as impeller doesn't hit the housing. Also, look for signs of oil. You may have to take the clamp off bottom going to cooler to check it well for oil. If it still has the silencer ring in it, it will be fairly quiet, but not bad.
check the shaft for play like said above,take it for a drive and see how it runs, They arent bad to replace and if you have a plan for more power than buy a better than stock turbo for it. Give us some more details on the truck- 2 or 4wd,auto or manual,miles,condition,reg cab,ext cab etc,whats he asking for it
Bill, aka Illflem, the mechanically well versed Montana rancher, mentioned earlier a company that rebuilds our turbos. The company is High Tech Turbo and their phone number is 801 304-0700. High Tech Turbo
Bill said they charge about $70.00 for a re-build.
