Turbo in need of a recon - Anywhere that buys them?

Evening Chaps/Chapettes,

Today I've just relieved myself of a large sum of money to have a brand new Garrett turbo fitted on my 1.9JTD M-Jet.

So now I have an old turbo knocking about in the passenger footwell. Condition wise, it has 2-3mm of play in the shaft but has not gone kaput. Question is, are there companies out there that will buy turbos to recon them and sell on?

On the plus side however, I'm not in constant fear of my engine feeding on bits of turbo now, and the power delivery is lurvely

Stu

Yes there are. Loz at autolusso bournemouth used a chap to recon his 2.4 turbo. Did a good job and at a reasonable price. Give him a call and he'll help you out
