View Full Version : ct26 upgrade

The guy I bought my alltrac from told me he sent the turbo off to be rebuilt into a ct27, how can I check this?

Why would he send it off when he was selling the car? Am I missing something?

Easiest way is to ask what shop he sent it to so you can call them.

I think he meant before the car was being sold.

Take off the intake pipe and look at the compressor wheel, if its a CT27 it will have a machined compressor housing and a larger wheel.

He was rebuilding the car for himself, but decided to sell it.

If you have nothing to compare it to you may not be able to tell if it's larger than normal.
You also probably won't see the machining from the outside.

Take a look at the nut in the center of the compressor.
Factory nuts have a whole bunch of small splines on them [it doesn't look like a normal nut].
SOME aftermarket rebuilds use the same type of nut, others use a normal looking nut. So take a look at the nut, if it's normal looking nut at least you know it's been rebuilt.
ATS also stamps the exhaust housing, but you can't see it when it's installed.
