Damn GT-R turbos need rebuild

Wednesday, 25 August 2004 | Comments (2) | Categories: Engine

Another set back - and it seems the curse has been passed onto the turbos, I had them checked at Performanz for a prospective buyer only to find out they need to be rebuilt. So, although it will cost money, I need to sell them rebuilt to make enough out of them. Will also try and recoup costs in the final pricing.

At least I'll feel comfortable in selling them once they've been rebuilt.


As for the other parts that are left, well, there's the air filters and adaptors, gearbox and turbos that are left. I'm thinking I may as well just keep the filters for the Silvia, and the exhaust which I thought would never go went on Saturday. Unfortunately out of the money I've made on selling the parts, I have had to purchase the bunky for $1500 and have paid close to an additional $1500 for parts and labour to get her running well again!

Oh well. I've managed to pick up a couple of private jobs lately which should help the cause.

Not good news to hear at all Brendo, I thought the turbo’s would be find, especially considering the power they were making!!!

When does the body work start on Project Silbeer?

Just waiting to hear back on the body work from Jeff. He needs to contact Tom first, and see where the Crown is at.
