Yes Defender 200tdi, not the casting numbers, he said there would be a plate somewhere.
Thanks DAve!

Defender Turbo numbers

300tdi: Model T250-04
Garrett Part numbers:
452055-0004
452055-0005
452055-0007
452055-0008

Defender 200tdi: Model TB0242
Garrett Part numbers:
465171-0001
465171-0002

Discovery 200tdi: Model TB0243
Garrett Part number:
465175-0001




Hope this list helps!

There appear to be only 'detail' differences between the models; for a rebuild 'kit' the TB number is the one that dictates what 'kit' they need. Only if they need to replace turbines or compressors do they need to start looking at the numbers closely to check they have the right part - but this is just a little detective work, for example - if all the T250-04 turbines are the same, but there are two different compressors, then you know any of the 452055 numbers can be used to find the compressor wheel part, but to figure out the exact turbine wheel, you need to do some measuring - it's not exactly hard though!

Incidentally, a stock 2.8 TGV would really sing on this

Or for a little more top-end either
http://www.turbobygarrett.com/turbob...2_452187_6.htm
or
http://www.turbobygarrett.com/turbob...9_452214_3.htm

(you need the 0.56 turbine for both though)...

You could pick up these turbo's for less than $800 brand-new if you shop around. Don't be fooled by 'china specials' though - it has to come in a garrett box and fay garrett on it LOL!

They are all standard T2 flange dimensions (which i believe the TGV is). I'm surprised no-one bothers looking at Garrett's own website, and instead spend huge sums modifying or rebuilding their own units. The GT stuff is way better than any TB turbo...

Do you rebuild or sell turbos for a 200tdi?

I just tinker...

You need to be very wary of turbo 'rebuilds' however. 99% of the kits available are not genuine garrett (even if they say they are). Turbo's that have done a lot of miles and need rebuilding would virtualy always need a new turbine from my experience - there is a groove that a 'piston ring' seal sits in which wears, meaning any new seal will not 'seal' properly... The shaft journals also need to be 'perfect' - i.e. nothing you can feel with your fingernail, ideally nothing that you can see...
If you 'rebuild' a turbo with a less than perfect turbine shaft, then don't expect it to be good for another 100K miles - think more like 5K, perhaps 10K miles...

There is no better piece of mind than fitting a brand-new, genuine boxed turbocharger. Just remember to prime it before firing it up the first time!

Thanks for all the into!
The rebuild would be all new except for the external stuff
As far as priming it, I guess you would just fill with oil?

I looked at the Garrett catalog and couldn't for the life of me figure out which would work?

Well, just make sure it is... If you're paying less than $400 for a rebuild I'd be asking questions...
Incidentally, it is often worth getting a price for a CHRA (centre-housing-rotating-assy)...

Any idea what the replacement from Garrett would be for a Defender 200tdi?
