RB Turbo & BMW OEM turbo install hardware

Hey guys,

I just wanted to let you know that I'm supporting Rob Beck with the distribution of RB turbochargers and associated RB Turbo hardware within Australia.

I can supply a brand new set of RB turbochargers and a complete BMW OEM turbo install kit to you or directly to your workshop if preferred.

The turbos are available for $3,899 and the install kit will cost $279.

FYI,

The first two pics are a comparison of a new'ish OEM TD03 turbocharger and a mint condition TD04 "hybrid" from RB Turbo with a TD04-15T compressor wheel and TD04L exhaust wheel.

N.B. whist there is no core charge associated with the purchase of the RBs, you will be required to send me your old OEM turbos once your mechanic has installed the RBs. This process keeps your car on the road whilst awaiting the arrival of your turbos and negates the hassles associated with the shipment of your cores to and from Rob in the US.

Rob has recently purchased a state-of-the-art VSR (Vibration Sorting Rig) to allow precision balancing of the CHRA/cartridge. Whilst RB's are known for their durability the new VSR balancing procedure will further increase the reliability of RB's within high boost applications.

I have also attached pic of a balancing report illustrating the end result of a VSR balanced cartridge on 3 consecutive runs from 20K to 170K rpm and the VSR itself.

Cheers,

Justin.

P.S. all amounts are in AUD with no GST component included.

For those guys that may have read some info on Rob's turbo upgrades that are currently being R&D'd, just so you know I am very much across that too.

I may have even had something to do with the naming convention for his proposed lineup, haha.

Anyway in the first pic from right to left, BMW OEM TD03, RB's, Super RB's and the second pic is a better illustration of the TD04-19T billet compressor wheel versus the TD03-10T cast wheel in the OEM turbochargers.

Rob has requested that I refrain from making any formal announcements until testing is complete and the design/wheel combination has been finalised. But I can say that a set of Super RB's are already on a car in the US, with a second vehicle to follow this week.

Cheers,

JD.

P.S. please excuse the less than perfect finish on the inlet neck of the compressor cover on the Super RB's, that pic was provided to me prior to final machining of the "Super's" that are now being tested.

You would have to assume he is, or is under review by the sponsors, otherwise this thread would have been shut down by now...

Haha, yes Jason has happily taken my money for "Silver Level" sponsorship.

If you review the same thread on the 3 Series forum you will see the "BimmerPost Supporting Vendor" tag in my Avatar. For some reason the vendor tag is not displayed on the 1Addicts forum.

Cheers,

Justin.
