RE: Replacement "kitty" suggestions...
Try Turbo City. They have complete rebuild kits that are pretty
reasonable as well as rebuilt turbos. I'm buying a rebuild kit for the
K26 on the '87 MC motor for the 4kq.
<<After tentatively diagnosing my Ur-Q's deteriorating performance to a
turbo -- end play is just above the spec'd limit -- I got the bright
check out the cat to see if it was restricted. Turned it out it was
partially obstructed -- several small chunks of honeycomb fell out when
shook it -- so I decided to gut it, figuring it would have to be
eventually regardless. It was kind of fun pounding away at it, believe
or not (I just pretended it was the guy who mandated that we run
fuel year 'round here in AZ!).
Any suggestions? I haven't even bothered to price an OEM replacement
frankly, would like to install one that takes advantage of the
advances over the past 12 years. Since I'm considering the upgrade to a
exhaust system, including downpipe from the turbo, I'd like it to flow
much as possible...
