GT2256V for sale

$100+shipping. I found something better. Turbo seems ok, has no shaft play and turns freely. Came from a Sprinter has the electronic vane control.

I guess everyone will ask for pics .

What do you reckon, how difficult will it be to install a simple wastegate actuator instead of the electronic module?

How much is shipping to Tirane, Albania (south europe)?

A matter of switching bolts around.


You might as well live on an island in the south pacific. A 1 foot square 10lb box costs $170-300 for shipping! I checked USPS, UPS, FedEx and DHL. Is there a better option?

It's perfect for a stock 3.0 diesel. But you'll need to figure out the electronic actuator, I think lever for the vane controller is not the correct size (longer) for a vacuum actuator.

I've got a local guy here(out in Damascus, MD) who's pretty interested in your turbo. Think it would do okay on a 3L engine with a 7K redline? He's only looking to push 10lbs (I'm sure he will want more once turbo fever sets in)

I gave him the forum address, lets see if he can find the thread

Hey winmutt, if you're confident about the condition of this turbo, I'm interested. I just looked it up on UPS.com and it looks like shipping from GA to WA for a 10 lb 12x12x12 box is only $15.22

What is the compressor side of this turbo like - relative to the stock T3?

Still want that 617? I'd want more than just the turbo though

So then that means this one is no longer for sale?
