When turned at 123,000 RPM, this might be a different story.


*edit*

I understand I can be repaired. Good luck with your sale...

A tpugh one.

This is a tough one. Your looking at about $500 for all the flight support hardware. Add the $600 for the rebuild, thats $1100. Add the $250, At $1350 it is cheaper than a new one, But I have seen them for less than that, for sale.

Good luck.

True, But after you send it in to jet cat you end up with a new turbine with zero hrs appose to buying a used engine with 7 or 9 hrs and then you still have to send it in to be checked out before you install it. in the model.

Thats why I said it's a tough call. I bought a NIB, never run P-70 on here last summer for $1250.

Another way to save is to buy the ecu and hardware used.
