I like the Hight Tech Turbos. You can make some good hp and they are easy to upgrade. A htb2 62/14 would be good for you but I'd look into some injectors too.

Yah, injectors would be sweet, but the turbo is on its way out before I had wanted it to. That turbo would be OK with the fuel I have now, would it not. What is a good place to get one, and price?:thanks:

Your turbo may not be going out. What type of movement do you have? Some up & down/side to side movement is normal. The engine oil takes up the rest. As long as the compressor wheel doesn't touch the housing, you are probably OK.

If you have ANY perceiveable end play (in and out), then you do have a problem. The spec is such, that you shouldn't be able to feel any end play.

If is some slight dampness with oil, you are OK. Now, if it is starting to be more than that, you may have a seal problem.

What kind of air filter are you running? If its an oiled filter,the oil is likely from over oiling it.The play you described sounds like normal play.If the turbo isnt noisy,I wouldnt worry about it too much,just let it cool before shut down,dont bark it,and change the oil often,the turbo should live a long life.

If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for the turbo? I see one in my future too.
