I discovered this fact on my own after talking to the very helpful guys at Blouch - he says for RDX, there are only two options:
  • 1. send them your own turbo to be rebuilt and upgraded (this requires that your turbo be in working shape which doesn't apply to me)
  • 2. buy OEM
He said that Honda/Acura own the designs/molds/etc for the turbo which explains why you can't buy JUST the wastegate actuator or the ovaled rings that folks have mentioned here, and why there are no aftermarket turbos....

So... in that case, I'm going to buy an OEM for $2.4K ( ) from buyautoparts.com (https://www.buyautoparts.com/1/1/114...900rwca01.html).

Has anybody had any experience buying parts from buyautoparts.com? BBB gives them an A+ rating but there's a slew of negative reviews on them (https://www.bbb.org/sdoc/business-re...ection=reviews)

Only place that sells them online says now out of stock - but they will collect your money before they let you know that.
Ended up finding a machine shop that works with stainless steel and brought the worn part (circle that is now an oval) to them to recreate the part for me. Will then screw back on to the waste gate actuator and hope that solves my problem.

Surprised no one is making the part if that is the only thing that wears on these turbos causing an entire replacement. Please tell us how much the shop charges and could you ask them if they are willing to make more if we contact them? Tks!

told me no more then $300 as they have IE. min labor costs etc...... They are hand making the piece. Should pick up this week and have put on next week. Will speak with the machinist and see if this is something he could produce more of for others. If so, i'll post his contact details.

Interested in this piece if you can get it made.

Tks. If this would save others from having to buy another turbo (assuming there is still life left in the stock unit), it would be a bargain.

New piece on right
price went up to $425 - so much labor and had to do drawings- probably cheaper for others now that I paid for drawings. Another issue is that the screw is left hand thread-( nothing simple). They ended up making the thread out of same piece so no weld like original. ALSO need to make sure you measure your post that the piece fits on. Mine had a lip around outer edge where piece did not rub - my post "center" had smaller measurement so submit your largest measurement of your post.

The thread looks like it doesn't go far enough down which might create the issue of not being able to keep the flap closed all the way. I mocked up a drawing before and actually make the distance between the top of the circle to the screw a bit shorter so that it didn't have to be screwed in all the way to keep the flap closed. Let us know how the piece works for you.

Nut does go all the way down - original is a welded on screw bolt. Aside from that the piece is adjustable -

That's great to hear. Please update us when you find out if the piece works or not. I've been looking to get one made and if it works I'll have to give your guy's a call for a price.

Perhaps they should do a group buy with something going back to you. When you said they made the thread (screw) out of the same piece, do you mean this started out as one solid chunk of metal? Is this the piece that is causing the majority of P2263 issues?


Thank you for having it done.

Would you happen to know what the original material is for the piece? Steel or aluminum?

Brad, it has been a while now. Did this piece resolved your issues?

A friend hooked me up with s welder who determined the grade of steel used and welded up the hole and redrilled to .585 inches. Should have the part back in the next few days.

I will ask if he is willing to fix up others if mailed to him and how much he would charge once I get the part back and install it, nothing had to be removed to take this part off the wastegate.

This is what the weld repaired part currently looks like, he is going to black oxide coat it and have it back to me no later than Wednesday.

Are you able to get to it without removing the turbo? Please get back to us.

Yes, just use 2 wrenches to loosen the lock nut then keep loosening the long nut until the part comes out, there is enough clearance to remove the part from the shaft it is connected to.

At this point, I'm just going to replace the turbo with a new, aftermarket model. that said; I know very little so I'm looking for some help on how to find a compatible turbo, and what I need to give my mechanic. new thread here:
I got my turbo removed, sending it to G-Pop shop for a rebuild.

Before sending it off, I took a video,
- is what's loose in the video the wastegate valve?
