The turbochargers for vintage cars are only apparently the same as the current ones but in the reality it is not so. They are more “sensitive” and overall less reliable because the materials used in the past were less efficient. As well as the production and the assembly technologies were less refined. The turbochargers were also used on less “intelligent” engines, there was less control of the combustion parameters which made them less stable the exhaust gas conditions.
All this to say, before defining whether a turbo can be remanufactured, it is good to view it and decide how to proceed and whether it is really worth it. Remanufacturing a vintage turbo can cost approximately from € 250 to € 600 with more or less optimal results depending on the level of action taken. Sometimes a cracked turbine housing can be restored but the work will be more expensive and the result not totally reliable. Or a broken actuator will be replaced with a different type, obviously it will work but it will be aesthetically different.
In SAITO we are very good in analysis of any kind of turbochargers and in particular for this use. We carry out technical analysis and offers for the remanufacturing.
