I don't know of anything really specific to the alltracs or 3sgte in the area, although I will say there's a guy, Singh, runs a shop in east San Jose called Reliant Auto, and I've taken mine to him many times and he's always been knowledgeable and unbelievably good at finding and getting parts for it quickly, at a more than fair price. I think the clutch job there cost less than half what we were quoted at the next cheapest shop. If there's anything I can't/don't want to do myself, I take it to him.
I'm having my turbo rebuilt right now, but in my case I pulled it myself and shipped it off to ATS racing (mine was already their CT27 model turbo, but you can ship them a CT26 as a core to buy a built one, too) cost starts at like 350 for a rebuild/balance, more to add ceramic coating etc.
CT27 uses the OEM CT26 housing so the smog inspector is none the wiser.
EDIT: P.S. if you're in the bay we should totally get together for cars and coffee at some point. Only ever seen one other alltrac out here so far, a red one we passed at a gas station in boulder creek.
