Im thinking of just boring out a new exhaust housing and putting the internals of this turbo inside with the compressor thats on now..... its a 57 trim.

Looks pretty bad, but I've seen worse....I'd probably wait around till the turbo seals crap out, which they like to do often. Then when getting it rebuilt just sending a good exhaust side housing with it so the better of the two can be put back togather.

eh. it happens. its even worse on the ST185 as they have a close coupled cat...anyway, you can live w/it until the crack goes all the way through the housing (connecting the inducer to the exducer). when that happens, you probably won't be able to hold consistant boost and a bunch of other weirdness.

i'd say thats moderate. i got a turbo with a small crack in it, but the crack actually is pre-exducer and it runs along inside the housing :eek:

My CT looks like that too. I bet if you look inside the exhaust side inlet, there will be a crack on the inside of the "snail". No big problems though, but boost would drop off at higher rpms.

indeed, I removed the exhaust housing from one of the extra turbos I had laying aroundd - it has cracks that are less severe and I plan on using it. Ill just change out the hot side of the turbo.
