CT20b for €340? It is much right? 1 Year, 2 Months ago Karma: 26
Hi,

Found one for sale, the seller says its working fine which I believe, but sill, I think its expensive.
I would hesitate less if it had the steel turbine, but this one definitely has the ceramic one which is AFAIK nearly impossible to re-build.

Any input appreciated

Cheers

Ended up getting one (17201-74070) for 220GBP with a Forge actuator. Not sure yet if this Forge is a good thing...

It came with a ceramic turbine wheel which had to go because one blade was broken.
The seller said it was working perfectly, but I guess it would have slowly destroyed itself due to imbalance caused by the broken off piece.

I got it rebuilt by turborebuild.co.uk for 290 GBP.
This included:
- New internals
- New Inconel/Steel turbine and shaft
- Cleaning, balancing
- New seals
- Return postage

The compressor wheel was re-used

All together did cost me €550. I guess its not that bad (?)

I have a Forge actuator. I noticed that when it would open the wastegate, the wastegate was rubbing on the inside wall of the downpipe. Not sure if it was the actuator or the aftermarket downpipe that was at fault.

I just got mine rebuilt with steel internals as ceramic is impossible to get, in Dublin for 350 - so you did well

Happy to hear I've got a good deal.

I've got PowerXS downpipe with cat, hopefully this actuator won't cause any trouble.

Where did you get your hands on XS plus cat?
I think i may need a new cat soon but options are very very limited

Hey Tony,

Ohh that was 7 years ago I'm afraid.
It was from ebay if I remember correctly.
I will look for the invoice and let you know.

Got them from XSPowerUK.com for 165GBP delivered. Its all irrelevant however as their webpage and ebay shop doesn't exist anymore.

You could still get a 3" downpipe + universal Cat + a good welder..
