Proturbo Core Policy

What is a Core?

Many products such as turbos, have a core charge that is associated with the new replacement part.  You must return the old part to receive a refund on the core charge.  All cores must be like for like and include all parts and pieces that were received on your new replacement product. Cores must be “as removed from the engine”.  Cores damaged from a fire are not acceptable, also cores damaged from improper removal may not be acceptable.

Core Return Label

The core return label is offered by Proturbo to customers that buy products that have a core charge. Proturbo will provide you with a Return shipping label.  This will save you money on the return shipping and will make sure your cores are returned correctly.  The label will be insured to protect your core.  This will make it a completely hassle-free process.  Only available for the 48 contiguous states.  If you have any questions – please contact


Upfront Core Charge

Upfront Core Charge will be charged on all remanufactured products.  Once the core is returned you will promptly receive a credit to your account on all acceptable cores (see below), usually within 48 hours of receipt of core.


Return Cores in Advance

Customer returns cores in advance to avoid the core charge.  The order will ship out once we have received the core. 


Core Physical Condition Requirements

All cores must be in re-buildable condition to receive a full refund of the core charge.  There are some conditions that you will not receive full credit, see conditions below.  On these conditions, it is up to the manufacturer on the amount of credit issued.

  • Water Damage
  • Broken
  • Disassembled
  • Missing parts and/or pieces
  • Core Charge Timeline

If the core is returned after 30 days, 50% of the core will be refunded. After 3 months cores will be accepted at Proturbo’s discretion.
