The Difference Between Remanufactured & Repaired Turbos

Many people get confused when they think about the differences between remanufactured turbochargers and repaired ones. It is a common misconception that they are the same thing, when they are not. Let's take a look at the differences between remanufactured and repaired turbochargers and why these aspects are not the same.

Definition of a Remanufactured Part

A remanufactured part fulfills a function, which is at least equivalent compared to the original part. This part is restored from an existing part using standardized industrial processes that are in line with specific technical specifications. A remanufactured part is given the same warranty as a new part and it clearly identifies the part as a remanufactured part and states the remanufacturer.

About Remanufactured Turbos

Remanufacturing a turbo means to return the turbo to being as close to new as possible. A remanufactured turbo is one that has been completely manufactured to meet the standard of an original new turbo engine. If the turbo has wearable components, then those are automatically replaced to new ones. Meeting the standards for a new turbo. And all of the components are inspected against original equipment specifications for correct dimensional tolerances.

Nearly all of the replacement parts will be new. If they are not brand new, they will be inspected used parts to ensure they meet industry standards for "new." If they are new, the part will be made and tested to manufacturer specifications and original production standards. When they are used parts, they will be inspected for any wear or other defects before they are used in any way. Either way, the remanufactured turbo needs to meet all OEM standards for tolerances, durability, and quality.

About Repaired Turbos

To repair a turbo engine is to recondition it by cleaning, inspecting, and replacing only the parts that are worn or broken. Serviceable parts are reused if they fit within the manufacturer's acceptable wear limits. The quality of repaired components can vary and many only come with a limited warranty as a result.

Before the repair work, all of the components within the unit are equally worn. After rebuilding it, some of the turbo's components may be new and some may come from a different used unit. Also, some of the parts and components will simply remain from the original turbocharger. Perhaps the "used" components will still function properly and do not need replacement, they are still worn to an extent.

There may be other factors at play, too, that are invisible to the human eye. Factors that cause wear and tear, such as cracks and heat stress. These issues can cause other problems and potentially result in premature failure. It is important to not the signs of these issues and the potential hazards leading to turbo failure.
