Turbo rebuild or upgrade
« on: September 16, 2020, 01:50:25 pm »
Hey everyone. Haven't been on in a long time question. Rebuild the turbo or should I upgrade it and to what?  99ctd quad cab 4x4 auto. Been having a problem with it building boost then no boost. I think its the valve in the housing hanging up but no sure.  Anyways. Truck is a daily driver and a couple of times a year as a tow vehicle for under 10k trailer. Truck is all stock except for an Edge with attitude. Trans has been rebuilt with good stuff but no bullet shifts. Also has a Patc triple disc converter.   whats everyone's opinions.   thanks
1999 2500 Ram qc auto 4x4 4"MBRB and Edge w/Attitude

New turbo. An S300 is only a couple hundred bucks more than  rebuild. I had my old turbo rebuilt by Work Turbochargers, and it was $500 plus shipping. On my 57 chevy, the S363 was about $850ish from Work Turbochargers on a black Friday deal about 3 years ago.
