ls1 rebuild /turbo rebuilding
I was looking at purchasing some turbo(s) for my 2000 TA. I found some used ones that need rebuilt. I think I could get the turbos for around $500. They are garrett T3/T4 turbos and was wondering if anyone had an idea of how much it would cost to get them rebuilt. Was looking to gain about or up to around 150hp out of the set up. Im sure that the drivetrain would be able to support the increase. Of course I would run an intercooler with them. Would this be the most cost affective/easiest mechanical way to pick up that kind of power other than nos? I was also looking into the gas mileage issue. Was also looking at a basic rebuild of the ls1, like new pistons, rings. lifters etc., since the car has +100,000 miles on it. I was thinking of staying close to the stock configuration just with (hopefully) more durable longer lasting higher performance aftermarket parts. Do you guys have any ideas? What do you guys think, is this agood idea or a bad one?
