my car is at the shop getting new valves, valve springs, intake maifold. Anyways when they took off the turbo they said it had shaft play :( They said it would be 600 to rubuild my greddy 18g turbo. I was wondering if this is a good price, and if i should do that or go with a new turbo and ex. manifold al together? I dont have the 600 right now, and i just got laid off so i wont have any income for a little while, so they are taking the turbo off and im gonna be running all motor for a little while. What would you guys do in my situation :confused

What are they going to do? A normal rebuild? Or replace the center section?

If it's just a normal rebuild that's a horrible price.

they said they are gonna replace the insides (probably the shaft since ther is shaft play) but im not 100% sure what theyre replace

a mitsubishi 18g is about $640 brand new.
i dont know how those people want to charge you $600 for a rebuild.
a basic rebuild should not cost over $300

I think a basic rebuild usually corrects shaft play in most cases...I've seen basic rebuilds and rebalancing go for as low as 180.

I would ask them what exactly they were doing and ask for a price breakdown

Seems like theyre trying to put u together. I would buy a new one at that price.

forcedperformance.com sells the mitshubishi 18g for $639, however i dont know if the mitsubishi 18g and the greddy 18g are the same thing.

i would leave it alone unless you're having problems. it shouldn't cost more than 300 to rebuild yours but like said above you can get another for around 600. seems like they're jacking you around.
