GMC Typhoon Syclone TD06-17C turbo rebuild

This is a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries(MHI) TD06-17C turbocharger off a GMC Typhoon. This turbo was sent in by a customer for our “Basic Rebuild Service”. This turbo just started showing signs of bearing wear and oil consumption. Turbocharger completely disassembled, all components cleaned, and inspected. Bearings, housings, rotors, and turbine shaft measured with precision micrometers and bore gauges. All clearances verified and turbo rotating assembly rebalanced. Turbine housing media blasted by hand and compressor housing polished. Turbocharger reassembled using all new component and Clevite assembly lubricant. This prevents dry starts and premature turbo failure.
