$250 for a rebuilt seems very reasonable.... that's a lot less than new.

Reasonable indeed - the bits that go into European alternators to rebuild them are pricey too - so it would be hard to touch that price at a local rebuild place.

Cheers,
Cameron

We have stock again.

Some people like the deal so much. They don't bother to return the cores.

That means you're going to have to charge for the core and refund once returned...

Very happy to see this offering! Could see possible demand for rebuilt, blueprinted port/polished turbo too. Available in the East from Cherry Turbos but nothing out here AFAIK.

I haven't read of turbo failures here for a LONG time, so it seems to be a relatively low-demand repair. My older one has 216,000 km on the original turbo and I think it'll go to 400K.

In the past month I've replaced 2 turbos (rebuilds from Cherry turbos).
One with 180,000k's, one at 190,000k's
