Got the chance to get two second hand GT30's (so I've been told), how can I tell if they are newer GT series garretts that use the newer bearing cartridge.

What should I look out for????How much $$$$ is good buy.

Re: GT30's

Make sure there is no or not much shaft play,check look for oil that
may have leaked through seals.Check impeller/turbine clearance...
Say $400 ea....Hard to say without knowing size etc....

Does this help ???

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
