K27HFS Value

Faced with the prospect of rebuilding and flipping my K27HFS. Needs some work by Durabilt (already have quote in hand - turbo is there). Trying to figure out if its worth rebuilding and flipping to offset some of the cost of the Garrett that was just installed.

What do people think a fair price is for a 100% fresh K27HFS from Durabilt?

I paid $1000 for mine a few years back. It did not have a fresh rebuild on it.

It may cost you $1000 to rebuild. You don't know what needs replaced until it is apart.

Already know what it needs. The turbo is there and apart. Trying to figure out if it's worth putting the money into it seeing as I've already put a new unit on the car.

bob pie at durabilt is a solid gentleman...I have known him for years. the kkk turbo often needs a new bearing hsg, turbine hsg and turbine wheel. the t hsg is prone to cracking and it is a big dollar part.

good luck in your decision making.

All that needs to be replaced normally? To me, the turbine wheel and CHRA are the backbone of the unit. If those are shot AND the turbine housing, you have a scrap turbo.

Take the comp wheel and housing off to recycle to another good unit.

How about just not putting anything into it and take advantage of modern turbo technology. It makes a hell of a difference believe me

Let me know what rebuild estimate looks like and what your looking at netting for the charger.

I've been Looking for a 27#8 and am going to pay a lot of attention to whatever you send back my way.

Say what? The OP already bought a modern turbo and wants to have this one repaired/rebuilt so he can sell it to someone that wants it (as per the very first post in this thread).

When Durabilt rebuilt my K27 HFS turbo they created a serial number and put it on the inside of the compressor cover.



The UMW serial number and name is on the tag on the outside of it.


The Holset compressor wheel that's in it.


I think it's sold but won't know for sure until a check arrives.
