How much is it to fix a turbo on a car?

I bought a used car a few months ago that has been modified with a turbo and some additional parts. It’s a blast to drive, but the turbo hasn’t been working correctly. How much does it typically cost to fix a car’s turbo?

I’m happy you enjoy driving your new-to-you vehicle. In general, you should expect to spend a few hundred dollars to fix the turbo.
If the turbo isn’t repairable, a replacement will likely cost $1,000 to $2,000, but some owners have reported prices as low as $500 while others report prices were closer to $4000.
That said, the price to fix the turbo on a car can significantly vary based on:
  • How severe the damage is
  • The make and model of your vehicle
  • The type of turbo installed
