Need a new turbo - 1.9 JTDm

I've put a deposit down on a 2006 GT 1.9 JTDm but when I was checking it over I was a bit unhappy with the noise from the turbo. The dealer has since had it at Alfa who have diagnosed a turbo with limited life left.

I don't actually have the car yet but would like to see how much a new or repaired turbo would be. Can anyone confirm if the turbo in this engine is the same as the 147 (engine code AR192A5)??

I've done some general enquiries and if it's just seals and bearings then it would be roughly 250 excl. I also got quoted approx 1000 excl vat for a new one

Is a reconditioned turbo basically one that has had seals, O rings and bearings replaced?


(My first Alfa in 15 years isn't off to a great start )

Turbo Failures pretty rare, even tuned ones. The Varible Vane used in the later GTs/147s AFAIK cannot be reconditioned by anyone other than Garret so re-con may not be an option..

I've had my recond by a company in nottingham 550. Turbos can be reconditioned, its just manufacturer doesnt want you to do it.
