Turbo Rebuild in Seattle?


Recommended Posts

I need to get my 280zx turbocharger rebuilt. Does anybody know of a place near Seattle that does quality turbo rebuilds? I found a place down in Kent (i think) called Alamo Turbochargers. They quoted me $350 bucks. I guess that is reasonable, but seems a little high. My turbo isn't it that bad of shap, just oozes oil out while its sitting so I have a nice huge cloud of smoke when i start her up!

Yeah maybe I will just take it to that Alamo place. I tried rebuilding the thing myself once, but that didn't fix the oil leaking problem. Pretty sure I didn't know what I was doing. I wanted to just replace it with a new GT series Garrett turbo, but they are alot of money! I just don't think I can spend that kinda dough right now. Especially considering the fact that it would need a little bit of fabrication to make it mate up to my exhaust and whatnot.
