I was wondering why that greddy kit was super cheap. See if it can be rebuilt first! Maybe there is a local shop that can rebuild it. If not then I am not sure where you can get the greddy turbo from used or new :(

There's 2 options.

#1: Send the Greddy turbo to get rebuilt, should be around $400-$500.

#2: Get a GT2871 or something along those lines, Supa Ninja is running it and Soxfan143 was running it on the Greddy kit. ATPTurbo has them, check it out. You just need a T25 housing with the internal wastegate. Cost will be around $800-$900 IIRC

I would ask if an oil restrictor is needed for the greddy kit. Might be that? We had a ton of smoke out of Khai's exhaust, forgot the oil restrictor.

Sucks sorry man :( Do greddy kits need an oil restrictor?
a .060 restrictor might fix the smoking. if it was fine on your friends wrecked car maybe you just have a lot more oil pressure. also check to make sure the oil retun isn't restricting the oil. really should do the proper oil drain and tapped pan.

unfortunately buying used isn't always good.

a gt2871r with the actuator is about 1200, but its a far superior turbo compared to the crappy little greddy turbo.

If he's using all the stuff that comes with the Greddy kit, there shouldn't be any smoking, I never had any. Also, I believe the Greddy lines come with a restrictor.

You just installed your turbo kit and already looking for cheap stuff??????

That really sux man. What is your exhaust setup? On my MazdaSpeed 3, it would smoke when I ran it with a test pipe b/c the turbo seals were bad. I put the cat back on and no more smoke. Just a thought if that was it...give you some time to save money for the upgrade.
