rebuilding my turbo.


Recommended Posts

my 02 auto with im guessing the HY35. i'd like to rebuild the turbo before it goes out. i've searched on here and another forum but not seen anyone do this.is is better to just buy a remand turbo? will the HX35 or an HX40 bolt right in? i'm not going to up my HP much. maybe some day down the road get some 50-100 injectors or maybe just edge comp. thank you for any input.

I'd pick up a used HX35W ($200-$300) to replace your HY35 and rebuild it yourself. Rebuild kit is $80-$100 and you can download a comprehensive Holset rebuild guide online. Total cost approx. $300.00 and 2-4 hours of your time. Only special tools required are snap ring pliers and they don't cost much. A HX35 will go nicely with 40-75hp injectors, EGT's should never be an issue, and should improve fuel economy 1-2mpg. A boost elbow for you waste gate set between 30-35psi and you are screamin'

The HY isn't too bad, but if your going to spend some money I would get a HX, especially with injectors. If you want to go a little further you can ship it to Turbo Re-Source in Lake Havasu, Az and they will rebuild it to better than new, and give you a 1 year guarantee. I am going to be shipping my dad's HE351CW off to them in a few weeks for a rebuild, and have a larger turbine wheel installed.

Killer223, I'm in the same boat. My HY has some play and oil leakage and I'm ready for a rebuild, and I'm leaning towards an HX upgrade. I just got an EZ on level 3 (+65 HP) and I have 60 HP injectors and the HY seems to handle the power just fine. I found an HX around here that needs a rebuild for $150 plus $100 for the rebuild kit. I don't see a downside. Hopefully I can get this accomplished in 2-3 weeks and report my findings.
