The is a brand new, original Mercedes Benz/Garrett turbocharger (same unit as sold by a Mercedes, Freightliner or Dodge dealer) and NOT a Chinese imitation product. This is a complete unit and includes the electronic actuator. A package of three gaskets, supplied by Garrett, is also included.

One of the biggest issues with higher mileage V6 engines, and causes of failure, is oil starvation at the center cartridge of the turbo. The oil feed and return passages are housed inside the cast iron pedestal/support stand that the turbo sits on. Mercedes Benz dealers automatically replace this every time that they do a turbo replacement. The passageways inside this become restricted over time, due to "oil coking". (Google: Engine Oil Coking) The turbo rotates at up to 280,000 RPM's and you do not want a lubrication problem at this point of your engine, as it will cause premature failure of the turbocharger. You can see the stand and the two related gaskets that are used with this below. We strongly suggest replacing this support stand when replacing the turbocharger, otherwise you risk a quick failure of your new turbocharger.. NO CORE DEPOSIT REQUIRED, AS THIS TURBO IS BRAND NEW AND SOLD OUTRIGHT. SAVE YOURSELF THE HEADACHE BY BUYING A NEW TURBO AND NOT A REMANUFACTURED UNIT. REBUILT TURBOS RARELY ARE OF GOOD QUALITY.
