Hello,

I live in Australia and my sister has a 1989 Ford Telstar 2.2 turbo with the IHI RHB5-VJ11 turbo fitted (I beleive this is identical to the engine fitted to the MX6 and 626 turbo of this era).

I am having trouble locating a second hand replacement VJ11 at a reasonable price and would like to know if you guys have any idea where I could get one (even internationally if it's cheap enough) or I would like to know what other options I have?

I have heard of someone fitting an RX7 turbocharger without any problems. My sister is not a performance nut, she just wants to get from A-B and solve the problem with a minimum of fuss with something that will do the job as good as the origional one. So are there any other bolt-on options that won't require remapping the ECU or modifying anything else? I would rather track down an RHB5-VJ11 for her though.

I would be grateful if you could please email me [email protected]

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
Mark.

You can rebuild the origial turbos to factory specs quite easily. There are many places in the US that do it and there should also be a few in AU that do this also. Look for the cost to be about $500 AU dollars or so to get it rebuilt.

I agree with Manifest, getting that one rebuilt would be the best thing. They can even upgrade it for about the same price, and her car will be even faster.

Last I checked, it costed about $400 US--have no idea what it would cost there.

Good luck
