Subaru Legacy GT IHI VF40 turbo rebuild

We have been extremely busy with turbo rebuilds and finally have pictures of a turbo rebuild we did for a customer in Anchorage, Alaska. This is an IHI VF40 turbocharger that came off a 2005 Subaru Forester. The turbo was in very bad shape when we received it for the overhaul. Customer complained of major oil consumption and smoking from the exhaust pipe. Inspection revealed a broken turbine rotor shaft and major damage to all components. . Complete rebuild was chosen as a solution. After final cost analysis we decided a whole new cartridge, CHRA, was the most cost effective solution for the customer. We replaced the CHRA to make this turbo 100% new. We disassembled the turbo, cleaned compressor housing and media blasted the turbine housing.
