Have had my territory turbo for about a month and my turbo has died due to lack of oil, which I am discovering is quite common. I have ordered a new oil feed line but I am looking at what turbo I should get, or if I should get it rebuilt? I dont want the car off the road for long, preferably would like to get a turbo by the weekend....

 

Car has high flow cat into 3.5" exhaust, bosch 42lb injectors and a flash tune (inderpendent motorsports). 

 

I do want to take it as an opportunity to upgrade but I dont want to waste money when I am not chasing huge horsepower anyway. I want a turbo with good response and mid range and enough for ~300kW atw (with supporting injectors, fuel etc). Pretty sure stock turbo can handle that, was thinking about possibly going down a size to the FG turbo for more response? 

 

At the moment I have looked at pulasr (cheap, havent seen a bad review though?), kinugawa, or OEM?

Dyno is good, just like ham.  

Street tuning a car isn't bad as far as tuning goes and if a racetrack or drag strip is used then that's fine. Hitting a kangaroo, radar, pothole or ya mates nanna while doing double the speed limit i

it's really totally up to you on what you do... a rebuilt turbo to stock spec is the cheapest but takes a while... any aftermarket turbo will cost a fair bit to purchase, get to you and then have installed and almost all aftermarket turbo's require at least minor mechanical changes to get the turbo to fit.

Thanks for the responses and the welcome! I guess my post was a bit vague.

I am happy to spend the money on an aftermarket turbo if it is going to be an improvement. Happy to get it tuned, do battery relocation and new intake.  Would prefer to not change the exhaust again so want to go with internal wastegate with stock interface. 
 

I guess my question is, for my needs, would an aftermarket turbo be a worthwhile improvement and if so which one, or should I just look around for a decent condition second hand turbo and save my money for a front mount?

 

also just generally asking for any experience good or bad with different manufacturers (ones I mention above or any others). Which are good, which should be avoided?

 

Last question, can fg battery relocation kits and intake kits be fitted/ modified to fit the territory ?

Yeah man I reckon a smaller, gen 2 gtx3576r or similar size g series turbo would be killer on a territory. It'll cost more than a repair to your current one but that's a given.

 

Hands down, the best upgrade for a territory is a front mount. Providing you keep the power reasonable, the plaz kit is great and requires minimal cutting of the vehicle.

Cheers mate, they aren't much but it's something! Hopefully get some roll racing footage up eventually.

 

You would buy a supercore and fit it to your housing. You might need a different actuator bracket but someone else can confirm the details of that, as I've only frigged around with the slightly larger turbos.

Think I am going to get the GTX3576R supercore as you suggest, GCG said everything will swap over ok. 

 

Ill need a new intake to suit the 4" intake on the GTX though. Can I use an FG or BA/BF intake and battery relocation kit?

Update:

Got the GTX3576R from GCG and got it installed. Everything seemed to swap over ok but they couldn't quite clock the turbo to the exact same angle as the standard one so it was a bit difficult getting the top mount piping to connect, but got it on there. 

 

Ordered a turbo side intake and battery relocation kit but it hasn’t arrived so just running a pod filter on the turbo for now. Spool noise is so loud with the tiny pod.

 

Booked in for a tune but just driving around and trying to keep off the boost. Which is proving very difficult.

Guys, I’m concerned the new turbo is getting noisey and is going to fail.
 

See video I took of the turbo noise winding down. Is this normal?
 

Mechanic assures me they checked oil flow out of the hose and there was heaps. Said plenty of oil pressure too. Return line was clear. So if it is the bearings going I don’t know what would be causing it.

12/8, so still almost 2 weeks! Had to push it back as I’m waiting for the intake kit.  Going to be a street tune as they don’t have an awd dyno. The only awd dyno I found in Newcastle said they dont them (fords?) and they wouldn’t hire it out! They mainly do Subarus.

But yeah that's just my 2c....at the end of the day

I'm sure they are but at the end of the day someone will be flooring that car down the highway at at least 160kph in 3rd gear or if they run 4th then 210kph.

 

To be the devils advocate to myself, mebbe they will only do 2nd gear pulls and just pull some timing from it so it won't knock in the higher gears?

 

Anyhow I don't want to be a scaremonger, I just wanted to raise awareness.
