broken turbo hdj 80. they do brake don't they ?

Hi All !



To-day we realized, the EXAUST MANIFOLD and the TURBO BODY both got a nice little gap.

Apparently one E.M. bolt broke long a go and provoked all this.

Obviously we must fix that properly for our trip to Mauritania.

Do you guys happen to know somebody who sells those parts, well... not too expensive ?

Or any advice ?

Thanks a lot.

Your best bet is to contact Maarten at Toptab Themeset - he does an uprated 'sport' turbo for a cheapper rpice than you will be ablle to get a replacement from Toyota.

The Turbo is and uprated one that can handle higher boost pressures, something that ight help in your quest for more power.

I finally ordered a turbo from All American. All other cheaper options looked a bit risky. I'll keep you informed

Well... my old Series III never broke no turbo.

Their last siter was work in progress for a couple of years and this latest one is exactly the same - I suspect that they have so much work (because they are good at it) that doing their website is a low priority.

A bit of a copy out, but your best bet is to either call or email them for a prompt response.

Question - not quite OT

Julian, you don't happen to know which brand of long range fuel tanks all american sell do you? I bought one from them, it is currently on the way to me and am curious!!! Assume it is Ozzy 'longranger' or ? Very prompt service but. Shame about the site though...

Sorry, don't know that - I'm surprised that you didn't ask before purchasing ;-)

I "strongly suspected" it was an Australian Longranger - George did send me detailed pictures of the tank... So I pretty much knew what I was buying was made right! And he confirmed just now that it is a Longranger :-)

That's good - they take a LC fuel guage so that you can wire it up to be able to check the level in the reserve, something you can't do with other tanks.
