Recently I had some engine problems with the Fairmont that required a complete tear down. Instead of putting everything back the way it was, I’ve decided to do some upgrades. One of the biggest upgrades is a new 67mm ceramic ball bearing turbo.
This turbo will spool up faster and potentially make more power as a result.
I’m going to keep the old turbo so that I might one day to a head to head of these 2 turbos on the dyno. I think it would be great to actually proved whether or not this new turbo makes more power.

Yes, there will be more #FairmontProject videos. I’m looking for help with editing the content I’ve already shot. Once that’s sorted out, I plan to start posting Fairmont videos in addition to the regular Friday repair videos.
