Better Story: Cruising at 70mph when Turbo's Blew,, LOUD BANG. Plenty of Black smoke, no power but engine turns (just) and starts but does not run above 10mph. Took 1hr to get about 5 miles by pushing and and sometimes with power.

to SUPRACHARGED IS340, Will they fit my V300 Aristo (GS300 body) and How Much?????

Chris, the turbo's Matt have are from the V300 TT Engine, get them while they are still on offer, these are like Rocking Horse ****. but not sure if the TT's are the same on the MK I and the MK II though

Sorry to hear about this though, I think this is the first time I've ever heard of the turbo's blowing up, how many miles had these done mate, may be a worth while to get mine checked - just incase :lol:

Hope you get this sorted soon Chris

What is it with you lot and blowing your turbo's :lol:

Mine has only done 92K admitly but it's over 14 years old and still kicks a**

I believe Steel bearing turbo's are better than cermic as they dispate the heat better but sure Matt or someone with better knowledge would be able to advise.

Hopefully mine still has a lot of life left in them.

Ceramic are normally lighter and therefore spool quicker. Steel are normally stronger and can take higher boost pressures.

You could use the standard ones fitted to the US/Euro spec Supra TT.
