mark, was that article on pelican?
No, it was from PM's between me and another member when I looked into rebuilding my turbo. This is a highly debated topic, DIY turbo rebuilding. The rebuilding part is easy, the balancing part is impossible DIY, although a person can get by pretty well by marking the shaft and turbin wheel(s) before disassembly to assure they are re-installed exactly where they were before taking it all apart. Personally, I think this is all shrouded in mystery but again, not difficult at all to rebuild, but to get the longevity a person should have it professionally balanced.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
