Hello all. I was interested in possibly rebuilding my turbo. Is this a better alternative to buying a new/used one? If so, anyone have one. For my 1987 GL-10 (EA-82t)
Another alternative is to replace just the center section with a rebuilt unit. You can get them from www.turbocity.com. Cost is around $350 IIRC. You just have to remove the compressor and turbine housings from your old turbo and bolt them onto the new center section. It worked out nicely for me, less work than rebuilding it myself and quite a bit cheaper than a new turbo.

your turbo will be a rbh5 vf4 through vf7. doesnt seem to be anything different between the vf4 and 7...i do beleive they are the same turbos. i am wondering if maybe the vf4 was the turbo for the auto tranny cars and the vf7 was for the 5 spd. but thats just a theory.
the turbo off my 3 door parts car was an rbh5 and it was a 5mt with d/r iirc.
