Why choose a remanufactured turbo? - 03.06.2024

With a significant increase in the range of turbo applications across all makes, we take a look at the market for turbos and the benefits of sourcing reman units in the aftermarket.IVS_Mazda_22L_Diesel_Turbo.jpg

1.     How is the market for turbos?
The extensive use of turbochargers in both the car and LCV segments has seen the number of applications increasing significantly in the UK’s vehicle parc, resulting in growing demand from workshops for replacement units.  As a remanufacturer, Ivor Searle offers an all makes turbo programme which provides over 90% parc coverage and our range is constantly expanding to reflect demand for specific applications.  For example, we have just added 70 new car and van applications to our already extensive offering to ensure it is fully up to date.
2.     What causes turbos to fail?
Contamination is a primary cause of turbo failure.  Particles from incomplete combustion can build up in the turbo over time, causing faults such as the vanes in variable geometry turbos becoming stuck. This causes power loss and can ultimately lead to component failure. There is also a risk of contamination being sent ‘upstream’ into the turbo due to problems exhaust system, such as blocked or restricted DPF.  Physical damage to the turbo can also occur due to debris being ingested into the compressor housing, damaging the turbo’s compressor blades.
3.     Why should workshops consider a remanufactured turbo?
Costing up to 40% less than OE, Ivor Searle remanufactured turbochargers provide workshops with a competitive advantage without compromising on quality, warranty protection or customer service.  To achieve this, we use the same quality-focussed ethos from over 75 years of engine remanufacturing expertise in our turbo remanufacturing facility, which is certified to ISO 9001:2015.  For peace of mind, all Ivor Searle turbochargers are provided with a transferable two-year unlimited mileage parts and labour warranty.  We also hold comprehensive stocks to minimise vehicle downtime and provide workshops with free next day UK mainland delivery on stock items ordered before 3.30pm.
