Default Rebuilding turbo

I have now ordered my turbo rebuilding kit. So my question is, is it easy to rebuild a turbo? I heard something about balancing the compressor wheel. I'm planning on doing it myself. (hopefully)

I rebuilt my HKS T4 turbo the only problem I had was installing the compressor seal it was a little brass seal with a carbon fiber peice that had to be pressed into the back fo the compressor wheel plate, Need less to say I had to by another seal because I broke the carbon fiber in a bunch of little ity bity peices. I asked the guy that I got it from which he owns his own turbo rebuild shop, how I can install it with out a press, I asked if I could use a c clamp he said that would work and to use a socket that would only touch the brass not the carbon. It took a while but I got it. And make for damn sure you put everything back in its specific place and orintation!!! The rest of the turbo is easy as cake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I'm not sure about that. I didn't but the guy I got the kit from did not say I had to. What turbo do you have?

That should be easy to rebuild, Like I said in my erlier post make sure you put everything back the way it was. If not you can brake stuff or do damage to the turbo over time.
