Default 2005 Turbo issue

New to site and I'm sure this is covered somewhere.

just found out my daughters 05 PT turbo failed. Dealer quoted $2500.00 to replace.... Question, how hard is it to replace a turbo. I have a pretty mechanical knowledge, tools and a cold garage.. thinking about doing it myself. Dealer told me it was about 90 hours of labor?

Thanks
paul

Didn't see Rob's link to the current thread on this at first. Read that as a primer and then ask your follow-up questions. We are here to help.

The turbo is part of the exhaust manifold. Have a look on rockauto.com they have 100% new kits. It is also possible to get just the center section and reuse your exhaust manifold and air inlet side.

I haven't done a PT but other than dealing with stuck nuts, it isn't a difficult job. I'd probably order new studs between the cylinder head, I've seen too many exhaust studs break across many models.

What specifically did they say failed in the turbo? What were the symptoms?

Thanks for the replies. Guessing the internal seal went bad... car started to puke a ton of smoke out the exhaust.... I checked PCV system... no blockages there

OK. Don't continue to drive it, at minimum the cat will be coated in carbon that might burn off. At worst the cat will be clogged / damaged and need $$$ replacement.
