well i went on a couple of hard runs to show a friend how horribly slow my slow ass car is, and afterwards i opened up the hood and saw that my turbo was glowing, crappy pic but it was at night with my crappy ass camera phone, but you can get the point haha. just being stupid. what exactly causes the turbo to glow red hot like that, could it be lean, or just overboosting the turbo. its the stock ct =-D time for a rebuild or trashing of it haha. o yeah, all the light is the glowing from my turbo, you can see how the turbo elbow is bright too. the heat shield was over the turbo too.
