I had my turbo rebuilt/upgraded (46 trim) at performance techniques, www.turbocharged.com

It has been 1.5 years since I had it done and no problems here.

i had mine done by turbonetics - it cost $450 + shipping both ways. I like it... If i were to do it all again i would just ship it to ATS and get their "CT-27" job done on it for $850 - but that all depends on how much power you want. It is all about goals. When i did mine, i knew then that it was just a stepping stone until i got a bigger turbo...

i think ats 27 is the same as the upgrade ct26 because if you look at the mods. and take that out it equals to there upgraded ver. of it

I also had turbonetics do mine. They upgraded it as much as they could, i believe it is a 57 trim. I dont exactly remember because a shop i went to sent it, not me. It works great and makes solid boost without spiking or loosing boost at higher rpms. I run it at about 20psi with a shitty $10 boost controller and it holds strong at 20psi all the way to redline.

Good advice goldfish!

At the same time I would stay away from Majestic and PT.

There have been plenty of turbo problems with Maj. and PT is questionable at best.

I must have been lucky, because I had no problems with PT or their work.

So far.. Majestic is 0 for 2 with me on CT26 rebuilds. Though they have been quick to have them returned to them and fixed at no extra charge. Currently though, they still have not contacted me on the status of the second turbo.. I will have to call them tomorrow.

my pt turbo upgrade works awesome. took a long time, but there are NO problems with it. btw, their alltrac.net price is now 475 plus shipping.

Toysport does the upgrades, i believe.
ATS seems to be the best now.
