Hi. So my turbo in wore out, for over four years, and finally going to do something about it. It has shaft play and sucks oil. Wondering if anyone knows if I can just replace the core. Alibaba has cores for about $150. They say they're for ihi rhb32. My concern is the compatibility. Does anyone know what I would have to check to make sure they're the same? Or if anyone knows the best way to go about this. I don't want to spend a lot of money.

Spend the money it takes to fix it right.

You could start by posting a link to the alibaba units, though my experience with alibaba is
that it's more like a yellow pages network for manufacturers advertising for companies that
want to buy direct and there is usually a minimum production like anywhere from 500-20,000 pieces.

If you did find quantity 1 core, it is not likely for the RHB32 VZ5 that has the water cooling jacket.

You can still order the Turbos new, expect to pay around $1400

If you're lucky enough to find a rebuilt, expect to pay $400-$700

Yeah something looks different. The local rebuild shop said they would just order me the centre piece. They said usually the shaft is worn out. Haven't got a quote on rebuild yet but this centre piece is $70 us. Not sure how much shipping is.

Yeah, that ain't the one on alibaba.

If you do end up getting the center piece for $70
please let us know. But that doesn't sound right.
I would love to buy a dozen or so for all my
junked turbos I've been saving up!

That center section on AliBaba is definitely not RHB32 , there is no coolant passages on it, just oil.
