    Default TD06SL2-20G on ST215 Caldina

    Hey guys,

    Well, the stock turbo on my Dina crapped itself, and after looking at my options, I decided to replace it with a TD06SL2-20G from Kinugawa. Thought it may interest some of you 3S-GTE people and particularly the Caldina owners.

    Check out the Compressor... It had a bout 3mm play in the shaft. I think the intercooler caught most of the metal

    So basically, my car is completely stock (apart from the suspension), so I was looking for something that would work with the stock fuel system etc. but also give room for possible mods and power gains in the future.

    New Turbo - $664 (ebay)
    New turbosmart wastegate - $220 (gumtree)
    Exhaust pipe/bends - $78
    1 turbo flange - $30
    Oil, water lines and fittings - $182
    Loan of Welder - $50
    Total - $1224

    Heat wrap - $64
    Heat reflective tape - $114
    Total - $178

    I forget what else I got, but the whole setup cost just under $1500. Anyway, thought this might help others who are contemplating similar mods.

    The finished product.....

    When I get a chance later I will post the steps for the build plus pics
