I'm considering rebuilding my stock TD05h. I don't feel the need to upgrade, at this point, mainly because I'd rather spend money on suspension, a good bucket seat, and a long list of other things that our 25 year old cars need.
My question is do you guys have any suggestions of where to buy my rebuild kit. I've seen plent pay online but the last thing I want to do is cheap out on parts inside my turbo.
And Is it even worth it to try to rebuild it myself, or should I let a professional do it?



Dirt, snow, grass, or ice if it's a loose surface I'm going sideways and happy about it.

I know mom and pop turbo shop use to sell a kit. Turbo lab sells a kit. The Chinese kit is fine. If you don't want to cheep out there is always the dealership. It's a coupe brass rings and a plate and some rubber bands. I got mine from turbo lab. It's the same Chinese knock off kit you would get from EBay I think. It has the bigger thrust bearing so the case needed to be modified slightly with a flat tip carbide. Watch some tutorials. Make sure you mark the alignment of everything really well. It's not too hard. You need large ring pliers and small ones. I ended up modifying a really big needle nose.

I bought mine from Kinugawa turbo on eBay, purchased a genuine MHI rebuild kit along with a 20G compressor cover and wheel upgrade as my original was damaged. Though if you have the stock 14B, you wouldn't be able to upgrade to a 16G wheel or above as the center cartridge needs to be machined to accept the 'super back' compressor wheel. I believe the 16G or 20G wheel and matched cover is a great upgrade over the stock 14B - it retains the stock look, is just as responsive but it keeps providing punch in the mid and upper rpm band where the 14B falls off.

For the time money and trouble of rebuilding you could just get a FP 68HTA and be done with it.

Quoting arapp:

What the hell are you talking about? I have a rebuilt and balanced turbo for under $120, tell me where can find a 68HTA for anywhere close to that. Also what about the supporting mods needed to run a 68HTA? It that included in the price also.

Rebuilding the MHI stuff is easy. Here's a TDO5H 20G (bastard 20G) I recently built for Bryan.

--- TD05H compressor cover
--- 20G cast 6 blade compressor (Inducer: 52.6 mm / Exducer: 68 mm)
--- TD05H turbine
--- Ported 7cm^2 turbine housing

I'm currently running a TDO5H 20G on 820, and ran that same turbo on 1837 prior to that. For around $300 bucks in parts plus an E316G you build these all day.
