Re: TX5 Turbo Recond prices???
The prices for new turbo's have dropped lattley! Beeing new there is every chance it will way outperform the std turbo..I would say $1200 to recon turbo where you could buy a new one for that, or atleast under $1500...
For the engine imo I'd go through whole assembly again, checking all clearances..You may need new valve gear as in springs, cam, lash adjusters? Which are not that expensive..Depends how much work you do yourself? But $1500 would come close to reconed shortblock...The tappets maybe rattley due to low oil presure or crap in oil system also?
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
