Learn about three different types of balancers - single-plane, dual-plane, and VSR - as well as turbo balancing techniques and what it looks like when a turbo component is properly balanced.
Buying a used turbo might seem like a good deal at the time, but that purchase might cost you more than you think. We'll show you the types of damage to look for and what to avoid.
It's very easy to damage the turbine or housing when taking apart a rusty turbo. We show you how to disassemble it without damaging the fragile parts within.
One question we are asked a lot is about brand new, in-the-box turbo wheels and parts - do they come balanced? Most of the time, yes, but not always.
Turbochargers need to be balanced during and after assembly. If you do not properly balance your turbocharger, you can burn out the bearings, seals and thrust collar with off-balance, non-parallel rotation.
Our VNT VGT testing video demonstrates how variable geometry turbochargers or variable nozzle turbine turbochargers work and testing the actuator after our turbo rebuild service.
