Well, after dismantling my CT20b I was un-pleasantly surprised to find the internals are NOT the same as a CT26 like every re-build kit on e-bay states. E-bay descriptions incorrect?! Go figure! lol
Anyway it was still a fun learning experience. I did go ahead and re-build my T-O4 compressor and exhaust wheel upgraded ct26, so all was not lost. I can deal with using that turbo.
I made some video of some of the differences between the two turbos and pretty much an entire dismantling of the ct20b. I have another stock ct26 I might re-build and record as well.
It was a lot easier than I expected really.
My next point of discussion now is... where in the world can I get a ct20b re-build kit? Every one I see on e-bay looks the same.
Anyways the kit was from TurbosRus and it was complete and everything fit perfect.
Other experiences and leads on parts most appreciated.

Also the fact that they mention three different CT20 turbos, bodes well for the odds of them knowing what's what.
