    Replacement Turbo Sourcing

    When I purchased my van the PO told me that a larger turbo was installed by the importer. Doing some research I figured out that it is a CT20 from a 2.4L Land Cruiser. After installing a boost gauge it seems like the wastegate actuator isn't working, and the turbo isn't really sized correctly for the engine. Full boost doesn't come on till around 3,000 RPM, making the van feel sluggish at times. I'm thinking of going back to the stock size CT12 turbo and am wondering if there is a reliable source for these. I have seen the ebay ones and am a little hesitant to purchase one. $200 just seems to cheep for a quality turbo.

    Does anybody have any experience with one of the ebay turbo's? Or maybe a good source for a better quality rebuilt unit?

    What’s the actual part number for the turbo, CT-12 was made for the Toyota Soura as well.

    Part number should be 17201-64050. I have done some google searching and found some sources from China, but like I said, I'm worried about quality with these parts. It would be nice to be able to get one from a reputable source.
