Default Td04hl-20t Value

Im trying gauge what the value of this turbo is. It has a Forge CBV, 3 angled turbine. The problem with it is that it has excessive end play. Needs a rebuild though it worked well in my car when I pulled it. Any ideas?

Thanks

Their ok for a smaller direct bolt on turbo. They build boost quickly which is fun at stop lights. Td04 is better than no turbo on these cars.

Slap a 40 dollar rebuild kit in it and rock on.

Well, I don't know how much they are asking for, but I live 5 minutes from Forge Motorsport UK HQ and use those CBVs on both of my 940 turbos, and they retail for about 150 including tax over here in old Blighty. So that might not answer your question properly as to the whole turbo value, but it might help you to decide. Being piston rather than diaphragm they are user serviceable and it's easy to swap different strength springs in to match boost level etc. Or you could sell it to make some money back, plonk on a blanking plate instead and make Choo Choo turbo chatter noises for as long as the compressor lasts.


Edit : If I'd read your post properly I'd have noticed that you are selling it rather than thinking about buying it. I'm an idiot.

I paid 160 usd for the forge CBV. It’s in good working order and fixed my leaking CBV issue. The factory one doesn’t seal well under high boost. I paid 550 for the turbo new from kinguwana and around 60 on here for the angle turbine assembly. I’ll probably just rebuild it if I can’t sell it and when I do the V8 swap next year I’ll just use the B230FT in a Isuzu Truck I have in my garage. Probably be a good build.

Thanks for the input
