Ok, so I need to have all the gaskets and nuts and studs i need to do a complete turbo swap by Sat. My 87 9000T has had a dying turbo for some time now, and it's on it's last legs. I have a replacement laying aroun in GOOD shape, but i need all the gaskets and nuts and bolts to install it properly. My Delema, tonight or tomorrow I must have the parts ordered, but i don't have a full list (i think) of all the gaskets i need. I know i need the Turbocharger to Manifold Gasket, do i need the Exhaust manifold gasket? What other gaskets should i get, and this is so i never hafta do this again to this car, so i need to do it right the first time. Also if you know where i can get the gaskets from and to me by Friday/Sat. that would be great.

Also "Genuine Turbocharger Gasket Set
For Turbocharger Installation" Would that really all i need?! I found it here All Foreign


Thanks, any fast replies would be well appriciated. Peace

Did exhaust manifold stud on MY96 9000 CS LPT and recall that if I only wanted to get turbo off and on again, then the rectangular metal turbo gasket was all that was necessary as turbo to downpipe is a tapered joint.

You will need new copper washers for the various oil and water banjos, or if you are confident, try annealing the old ones.

HTH,

Pete
