I just noticed the inlet as of today when I took the Intake Pipe off. I am in the process of installing an oil catch can.
The car felt like nothing was wrong, I was boosting fine. But now that I see this...no driving until it gets fixed.
Next on the list is a compression test and I'll go from there I guess.
bigger would be better...but yes, i am on stock fuel.
Along with that problem, I am not runnig any sort of management (i currently have a ROM tuned G-Force) so I would have to step up with an E-Manage or similar. O well. Decisions Decisions.
looks like it ran with out a filter
i dont see how dirt can do that
i have had my T88 with no rebuild for about 8 years with a greddy filter and its not even close to looking like that. i have even pulled my filter off at the track.
when you get it rebuilt make sure there are no deep scores inside the compressor housing.
you might even want to get a new compressor housing
Ive got everything pulled off (turbo, manifold, dp, ic). looks like there is no other damage so far.
Im thinking about sending my turbo and manifold to deadbolt. Can some of you give me some feedback about this company?
I mainly want to send it to them so they can coat and rebuild the turbo all in house so i dont have to mess with shipping different parts across the country. Initial inspection/estimate is $50 + shipping which will go towards the rebuild if I choose. Let me know if this is a place you would send your turbo.
