Did I Get A Good Deal On A Turbo?
« on: 07:09:16 AM / 15-May-10 »
So i got an offer for a greddy t3/t4 turbo, along with a BOV and a new BOV flange..

The turbo has no shaft play, and was recently been rebuilt.

I am trading him for my 800watt Power Acoustic amp, and a $250 sub woofer.

Good deal? I dont really know, because he started out just wanting the subwoofer, and then he said that he does not need that size sub... So i threw in the amp..


Now im kinda thinking twice, because thats a hell of a nice amp!
A link to a pic of the amp is here

and the sub here.

The amp retails at around $150, and the sub at $250..

Good deal?

The best thing about it, is that i only payed $25 for the amp and sub.
I got it off this girl whos bf worked on cars, and when they broke up, he forgot to take it out of her garage... so she sold it. she aparently didnt know what its worth! haha

Anyways, i just got back.. I got the turbo, the BOV, and a sweet BOV flange.. The flange is already welded onto a tube, so no welding is involved for installing the bov!

Sweet

sweet, thanks for everyone that replied.. i was kinda nervous, because idk how much turbos sell for, and that amp and sub were the most expensive thing in my car lol.

Thanks again... Updates on the turbo will be on my build thread if anybody want to know how my ka24et project goes

Acctually, the turbo is a Garrett.. Im not sure if greddy and Garrett are the same, but thats what the guy said it was.

He said it was a greddy,

but it says Garrett on the turbo

no greddy turbos will have a little plaque thing usually on the compressor housing.

at least its a garrett.. hopefully lol

post a pic of it up.

I looked the numbers up on google, it came up to some garrett parts distributer... i guess its like a serial number?

and he did not say anything about the bearings.

ok if you googled the numbers and an actual garrett site came up then its legit...The only reason I asked about the bearings is because if it's journal bearing you can have iggy rebuild it when it goes...He does aweome work!
