2 honda skis for 1500 with double trailer.. Should I do it?
I just got off the phone with my buddy and his mom wants her ex"s skis out of her garage. Not sure the year yet but they are both turbos. He says the turbos aren't working but they don't know much about anything. They have also been sitting for a while. Should I go for it? Seems to good to pass up. How much would a rebuilt turbo cost?

1500 is a sweet deal make sure oil is clean and not milky with water in it

I found out it's at least 800 to rebuild the turbo. I'm going to check them out tomorrow. Supposedly they only idle.

1500 dollars for two Honda turbo skis. I wouldn't care if the turbo stoped working. That could mean anything. Stuck wastegate actuator or stuck turbine wheel lol.

Totally worth it. Those are $6000 skis around here if they run.

Make sure you get the titles because if they belong to her Ex, he might just come back to you for "his" stuff.

Well I picked them up today!
The first one seems to run great but the back of the motor is making a noise that's not from the motor... We will see. The only other issue is a bolt broke off the valve cover and when it was running was spitting oil all over the place
The second one starts for a second and then dies. We will see. Both turbos spin while running.
