Looking for a turbo rebuilder/repairer

Does anyone have a recommendation for a Turbo rebuilder for a unit with worn bearings off and 1989 19j motor?

Or anyone who could repair the cracked one from a previous thread?

Or does anyone have one to sell?

Cheers,

I'm in Tucson but can mail it anywhere. Would need to be within the next week.

Get the part number off the turbo, then search for a assembled CHRA. If your exhaust and compressor housings are still good its an easy swap out.

I think you might save money by just ordering a new one from LRdirect. ETC8751 is showing at $725.55 for the complete unit. ( I think that's the right part )

Thanks guys, I'll try Jeff tomorrow. There's a place in Phoenix too but I've no idea if they are any good.

That turbo was built in Phoenix. I wonder if the tech worked for Garrett at the time.
