Turbo rebuild what company to use?

After a long struggle with low power, I have ripped the Turbo out.

Strange thing; bearings are top with no play at all.

Vanes are stuck solid, and I mean “SOLID”.

But it looks like the Blades had contact with the Vanes at some point.

I wonder if the previous owner played with the adjustment.

Anyway; has anyone tried reconditioned units?

Cheapest one I could find is from

Alfa Romeo 156 Turbochargers reconditioned & New Turbo - Remanufactured Turbos

£ 328.00 plus VAT, sounds Ok to me.

Are they any good?

best regards

Not sure about them (haven't used them) but you may want to give "The Diesel Workshop" a call. Autolusso use them if that's a good enough reccommendation....
Might be worth them having a go at fixing it.

Chris Self is the man to ask for.

For that problem, buy a new one, or speak to Turbo technics - or it'll never work properly.
