We can now do rebuilds on Subaru IHI ball bearing turbos.

The rebuild service includes:

-Disassemble turbo to the component level

-Blast, clean, polish, and balance turbine shaft

-Blast, clean, polish and balance compressor wheel

-Replace turbine and compressor oil seals (aka “piston rings”)

-Assemble cartridge

-VSR Cartridge balance

-Assemble complete turbo


We now have new turbine wheel shafts in stock for the RHF5HB IHI Ball Bearing Turbos! (updated 11/7/13)

We have found that the most common problem with these turbos is wear to the turbine shaft seal groove or “land” causing oil leakage and eventually smoke out the tailpipe. In the event that your turbine shaft has excessive wear, we have oversize piston rings for these turbos. We can oversize the seal land to the proper spec to fit the new oversize seal ring.

We can even fix broken or damaged blades. We also can do Billet compressor wheel upgrades on these turbos.

We cannot replace or repair the ball bearings themselves. The ball bearing system is not for sale separately.
