I've got one I just pulled off my car last weekend for a big turbo. Has 125k miles so it is on the high side but I never had a problem with it.

I also have a 50k mile turbo that needs cleaning. It came off the engine that's in the car and I just kept it as a spare. I can't confirm that it works but I assume it works as well as the engine does.

I can do $100 plus shipping.

Let me know if you want pictures.

If you’re interested I have a Garrett powermax that I will sell you for 750+ shipping

It’s 100% brand new and completely drop in. Just requires a custom tune.

Possibly interested in this! Pardon my ignorance and I’m sure it varies but do you know what a tune typically costs?

Completely honest with you:

$200-300 for the tune
$400-500 for a tuning device
$750 for the turbo

It would be a better option if you were running a stock turbo tune already and would be looking to upgrade.

I appreciate the offer but I’m looking for one with ~60k or less. Thank you though.

Curious - what mileage is on your turbo when it failed ? And what was the failure/symptoms?

I’ll take it! I didn’t get a notification from this comment but if you still have it I’ll happily purchase.

76k, it started making a siren type sound that I thought was a boost leak but I didn’t really notice a change in torque. It progressively got louder and then just lost all boost on the way home from work one day.

Interesting - I'm on 125k on original turbo, so I guess I need to keep my ear out for a siren sound......... ;)

😂

how many miles were on yours? Did you deal with the dreaded woowoos?
86k and I don't have any woo woos but my wategate sounds like a chainsaw on metal at this point.
It's the wastegate shaft that comes through the hotside housing that has worn.
