I've got a Volvo
TMD-22 with a Garrett Turbo on it (Volvo Part: 3802019, Garrett Part: 466770-6). This baby has a wastegate on it that is prone to trouble. The wastegate is connected to the exhaust elbow
and is subject to all the heat, salt
and other fun stuff that the exhaust
gets. The fun all started for me when the waste gate got stuck in the open position and as a result all the extra pressure at high revs blew my head gasket
. I've replaced the head gasket
and have the engine
all back together but I'm having trouble with fixing this turbo. It is totally stuck and the Volvo
dealer wants $2,000 US for a new one. The turbo works great, but the local turbo guy says he is trying to find a new housing (used or new) from Garett or someone to replace the waste gate.
Has anyone had any luck finding a part like this? Garretts are really common turbos in the auto world, but this one has that fancy marine
waste gate on it.
Any help would be appreciated.
