hi i've just bought a 1990 3.0 turbo supra and im over the moon ........ now for the bad news the turbo is shot i was hoping for a easy fix ie just putting some new seals in it but no the turbine blades have bits broken off. Is it going to be cheaper to get a second hand turbo if i can find 1 or get it replaced. A new char (i belive its called ) would be great, i know that they have to be balanced any advice or contacts would be very helpful i have waited a long time to get my supra and i still haven't driven it longing for the day i can

Hi Gav. I would firstly get the turbo situation looked into and see what is actually required and if any damage has been caused, a second hand turbo shouldn't be too difficult to source (breakers or clubs) or a recon unit. One thing to check on a MK3 before you start spending money is the head gasket, they are prone to give way, having said that I had three Mk3's and never encountered the problem.
Best of luck with sorting the car out.
