Hmmm turbo 156 jtd

hi all after reading several threads over the months regarding recon turbos for the 2.4 jtd . i had a recon fitted by alfa sport in cambridge three weeks ago it was supplied by turbotechics and is a garret,the cars running fine and the turbo seems ok she will rev across the full rev band with no smoke, and has never driven this good , can any one tell me where the info came from regarding recons being no good .also after speaking to angel tuning they said there wouldnt be a problem with the turbos either so is this just normal forum rubbish where everyones an expert.the unit was 475 fitted

Re: turbo 156 jtd

The physical turbo unit can be reconditioned but the Variable Vanes cannot be recailbrated correctly - so therefor you could still have a turbo that works but the vanes could still stick a few thousand miles down the road.

I just bought a new turbo for my 156 JTD and was told by TT that I must return my old turbo as they destroy it because too many people are reconditioning them and you're not supposed to.

They only people who can recalibrate the vanes are Alfa themselves.

cj romeo knows alot more about them so drop him a PM or do a search for TURBO
