Things I Should Do To My Turbo Whilst It Is Out?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Got a Turbo Terri Ghia 2006

Blew the turbo and just purchased this replacement setup on ebay:

Whilst its out I wouldn't mind spending some cash on the turbo for some upgrades to get some quicker spool/more flow etc, can anyone suggest if these are worth it or just a waste of money and time:

.70 front housing upgrade:

Billet wheel upgrade:

Flutter mod:

I dont know how to do this yet, is it something that can be done at home, do I need to replace the internal gate flutter?

Also upgrading with that aftermarket exhaust manifold, Plazmaman stage 2 intercooler kit.

already have the following mods:

4 inch dump to cat
high flow 4 inch cat
dual 2.75 magnaflow cat back
Injectors

Chip ECU with hand controller (this it was like SRT or something)

Tuned by Xtreme ford tuning on around 13PSI.
plazmaman under the battery intake kit

Drivers side engine mount and Power Steering lines would be my suggestion.

You spoke about something completely different which got me thinking, are the engine mount and power steering lines a common issue?

Much easier to replace whilst turbo is out.

If they are suspect at all I would change them. Power steering lines can be had for less than $100 on ebay.

Thanks, I will check them out this weekend and see what state they are in.

Can someone tell me if upgrading the Compressor housing from .50 to .70 is worth it?

I've been told that it can increase much more flow, is this true? or not worth the hassle?

I have spoken with MTQ and they said this housing and billet wheel from KINGAWA are actually pretty good.

A/R .70 Comp housing:

Billet wheel:

oing to probably get these both and get MTQ to Balance it and then complete the flapper mod for $570
