I'm replacing the GT17 in my 2005 Vector with a TD04. I have everything I need except the turbo!
I don't really want to go for a Chinese clone if I can help it.
Anybody have a good one - with no shaft play, as they say?
I've trawled the posts and there is much discussion on this very topic - but I thought I'd raise it again to get the latest feedback, as many of the posts are a few years old now.

I'm planning to do a TD04 conversion on my "1.8"t 9-3 2004
My first question is, when installing the simota intake there is a little extra thing you have to do on the aero, what is this? why dont i have it? is it related to the different turbo ?will i need it for the conversion? if not...
Has anybody got a scrap Mitsubushi turbo that I can buy for reasonably money. I only need the exhaust housing as my wastegate poppet valves fallen off. Or, I can swop for parts if preferred. I'm at Notts. Thanks. Mike.

Mitsubishi TD04 removed from a saab 9-5 aero needs a rebuild, Good for a hybrid rebuild maybe?
Here is info and pics of the turbo
I can't see any obvious movement in the shaft when spinning it or wiggling it about.
I think it is seals that are shot, But there was a lack of...
I now know that the oil feed, coolant feed and coolant return banjo bolt sizes on the TD04 are all M12 x 1.5 pitch.
Can anyone here advise on sizes of the other ends of the oil and coolant feed pipes please ? Are they M12 or M14 ? Trying to ascertain without having to dismantle them to...
I have lost the R-pin off the wastegate boss. Happened 200mls from home but no real problem on the motorway home. Maintained a decent lick without the turbo. Trouble is the remains of the pin are stuck in the hole and bits of bent wire don't work. I am thinking to drop the JT downpipe to give me...
Exactly one month ago I placed an order with Elkparts for a TD04. I was told because they were out of stock it would be a 7-10 day wait. Hmm ok then, i can wait.
One month later and after I had to keep calling them to find out the situation I cancelled the order. Surely if I had a customer that...
To cut a very long and annoying story short, I was engaged in overhauling my aero turbo last night. the job was going very well until I went to nip up the left hand nut holding the compressor wheel on. CRACK, the shaft sheared in half. After throwing my tools on the floor etc I have come to...
