Local Turbo Rebuild Shop

Anyone know of any local shops that rebuild turbos? I have an air reasearch on my car and it is starting to smoke a bit.

Just buy a new center section. I bet Turbonetics could get you one, Air Research is just really old Garrett.

You could try a place in Minooka IL called R&S Distributors 815-467-9545

or Midwest Fuel Injection in Palatine, I don't have their number though.

Yea. Motor only has 5,000 miles on it since it was rebuilt and fully balanced and blueprinted. One of the lobes on the cams went on it but luckily Crane warrantied the cam and sent a brand new one, a more expensive model actually. We honed the cylinders and put brand new rings in it while it was out of the car. So we have basically narrowed it down to the turbo.

If you install the rings backwards or don't stagger the rings, it will blow oil. PCV that is stuck can do it as well. I would pull the turbo and run the car and see if it smokes.

Turbo smoke is usually easy to troubleshoot. If it's blowing a lot of blueish-smoke under full boost, there's a hint. You could disable the boost controller and jam the wastegate wide open, if smoke is still coming out under WOT then it might be the engine and not the turbo (unless the center cartridge is just pissing it out. But typically high boost pressure pushed the oil out past bad o-rings.
