- Isuzu vehicle(s): Original owner, '83 LS Diesel, 5-spd, 2wd, Long Bed, restoration in progress!
I ordered a brand new cartridge for the TD04HL-15T through an ohio shop: https://www.xsboostturbochargers.com/
The price was almost exactly the same what an overhaul would be anyways. Also comes with a full year unlimited mile warranty. That way I will have a spare core that doesn't need much but a cleaning, bearings, and balancing. Which I'll can do at leisure.
I still have the inter cooler, piping, oil supply line, coolant lines and fittings, wastegate and misc. odds and ends to buy yet.
But shouldn't be too long.
All vehicles are hunks of crap. Designed by individuals, the majority of which, have never turned a wrench.
Which one do you want to fall in love with?
