now what?
« on: November 02, 2012, 17:22:55 »
It seems my turbo has been playing hungry hippos and has been chewing on something quite hard such that the front of the input impeller had flattened the vanes and bent a couple too. That said whatever it was had been turned into a nice washer so that's good. Add to this it seems to have burst the head gaskets on the rear cylinder just for a laugh...

Having already spent 550 on it I guess I keep spending. Any recommend suppliers of turbos and head gaskets?

Why did I bother, expensive unreliable waste of aluminium.
