    Regarding oil analysis, I never put too much stock in a single oil analysis unless it shows something dramatic, and it could, well worth the $25 to do it. I find them much better if you have them year after year for comparison to use for preventative maintenance.

    We went with 800 hp. You can probably get a recon for 50-60 thousand.

    3208 rebuild with T&S marine

    I had my 3208 rebuilt last winter by T & S marine and I could not be happier with their work. Motor even looks brand new, no kidding, and it runs great. I dealt with Tom, and the whole process was as expected, no major overages. Good shop.
    Thanks for the recommendation November Rain!!

    I just bought a 37' Tiara with win Cat 3208's 435 hp, with 950 hrs. I just replaced the aftercoolers and was told that my turbo's may need a rebuild soon, the boat is beginning to smoke a little. Does anyone have an idea of the estimated cost of a turbo rebuild ? Thanks

    Mine cost about $700 to rebuild. Was this Tiara in Greenport by any chance?

    When I replaced my turbos about 5 years ago they were $750 for the cartrages (center section from a Borg Warner distributer) and $1000 for the exhaust housings (Cat only part). Plus some gaskets, "O" rings and antifreeze. You should send the cartrage section to a rebuilder, to see if it can be rebuilt. It's really not a difficult job at all
