I picked up an old school fp green at the shootout. There's absolutely zero shaft play, but the turbo doesn't spin very freely and the seller recommended a rebuild as they knew nothing about the turbo's past aside from it coming with a parts car they bought.

My question is what rebuild kit is needed? Is it just a basic tdo5h rebuild kit?

Upgraded thrust parts are absolutely necessary; don't use $27 eBay garbage. Actually about 99% of what is being sold on eBay as rebuild parts is Chinese trash.

Balancing the torqued rotor group will also be necessary if you're replacing the thrust hardware or are not location-referencing every component on the shaft that is being re-used while disassembling, including the thrust parts. If you fail to get the rotor balanced or use generic parts and the turbo fails as a result, it's scrap...you cannot just buy the compressor wheel which came in this turbo anywhere, it's a Garrett wheel that has been machined to work on a MHI turbocharger.

So is that the correct kit tho? tdo5h? Where can I buy from?
