Not sure if you mean me(I'm in toronto too), but the wheel scraping sounds all too familiar...KnightRydeR said:Buddy of mine had that problem, on idle he would smoke and on downshifting. The turbo is leaking either coolant or oil into the downpipe. In my buddy's case, his exhaust side was soo bad it was scraping the walls of the exhaust housing.
Sounds 100% like blown turbo seals. Valve stem seals smoke on startup, piston rings smoke on acceleration.supraphile said:It is NOT the turbo seals. AQnyone else ever had these nsymptoms? Valvetrain? or rings?
I do not wanna tear apart the head if I don't have to. Just like I don't wanna drop the front crossmember if I don't have to.
88 mk3 turbo.
