If we do not have your particular application in stock we are able to source most turbochargers usually within 1-2 days at very competitive prices.
At times some turbos may not be available in Australia and in these cases we may have to source them from overseas. However, in saying this we only offer genuine turbochargers for sale as we want to ensure our customers are happy and confident with their purchases and are getting guaranteed quality. It also gives us peace of mind that our turbos for sale are all backed by manufacturer’s warranties and we have solid trading relationships in place with our suppliers in the unlikely event that any problems arise.
We can now also offer select aftermarket turbochargers from trusted suppliers with extensive warranties.
We have a number of remanufactured turbos for sale at any given time. All of these turbos are genuine turbochargers that have been rebuilt using quality replacement parts where required, reusing serviceable parts that have been immaculately cleaned, the turbocharger is then reassembled and balanced to OEM specifications. A certificate of balance is provided with every turbo.
Our work is fully guaranteed and we offer a 12 month repair or replacement warranty on all of our reman turbochargers for sale.
Essentially a turbocharger is a turbine-driven force which is driven by the engine’s waste exhaust gases. The engine’s power output is controlled by flow, pressure and temperature.
A turbocharger consists of a compressor and a turbine, connected by a common shaft. The bearing system supports the turbine shaft whilst the turbine, driven by the compressed air supplies the energy for the compressor.
The turbine wheel converts heat and pressure into a rotational force. As the wheel rotates it turns the turbine shaft, in turn spinning the compressor wheel.
The turbine wheel is a critical component of the turbocharger. Too small a turbine wheel introduces the possibility of excessive back pressure, potentially choking the engine and resulting in a loss of power. Too large a wheel can be just as damaging, increasing lag and interfering with the boost and overall engine response.
The compressor takes air at ambient temperatures and compresses it before funnelling it towards the throttle body
The compressor wheel is connected to the turbine wheel via the turbine shaft and as a result the wheel rotates at the same RPM as the turbine wheel, accelerating with the engine and turbine wheel.
This action provides the ‘boost’ for the engine.
Bearings are the most commonly replaced part of the turbocharger. These can start to wear for a variety of reasons, a few being oil condition, axial loads or even shaft movement.
The wear and tear of bearings is in part due to the small particles within the oil system.
Many turbocharger repairers and manufacturers will offer upgraded bearing systems, such as the ball-bearing units which eliminate the thrust bearing in standard turbocharger systems. The result is a turbo which can withstand greater thrust load capacity of a traditional turbo.
The blow off valve, mounted on the compressor side of the turbocharger relieves pressure as it builds up, blowing off excess boost pressure which becomes trapped in the system when the throttle blade shuts.
Turbochargers rely on wastegates to control boost and overall engine power. This is achieved through ‘bleeding off’ exhaust gas before it reaches the inlet of the turbine housing.
A faulty wastegate would result in excessive boost, leading the turbine wheel to reach choke point and resulting in a couple of melted pistons or possibly even a hole in the block.
Though design differs every wastegate features an inlet and outlet port through which gas enters. A valve regulates the air flow, a diaphragm actuator controls when the valve opens and closes.
As boost pressure rises the pressure forces the spring assembly lifts the valve, diverting exhaust gas from the turbine and regulating the turbine’s speed.
Wastegates operate on different springs which are swapped according to target boost levels.
To give your vehicle a safe boost that won’t cause any damage to its systems trust the experts at Eastern Turbocharger Services. For more information about effective and high-performance turbos for sale in Australia call us today on 03 9729 1636
