Hello All

It seems that I have a TE44 Turbo on the 87 engine. Thanks for the Help.

The Turbo shaft bearings are just a little too loose, the compressor impeller has just kissed the Inlet Annulus Housing, but not enough to disturb the machining marks though.

Does anyone know where I can get "Garrett" High Quality Rebuild Kits for the center section?

Thanks in Advance

Dusty

P.S.
Does anyone have a guess as to what HP the engine was putting out with this turbo, 42# Injectors and adjustable fuel pressure regulator installed???

I can't say what your actual horsepower is but I have a chart prepared by a speed shop that shows the hp range for different turbos and injectors. Not sure how accurate it is but 43# injectors = 410 - 545 hp, the TE44 = max 580.
