the turbo was primed properly....was getting oil and coolant....

when i got the turbo it had some shaft play but didn't think it was enough to worry about(and i really just wanted to get the car back on the road and didn;'t want to waste the 400$ on duty :mad:)

do u think gruppe-s will/should warranty it? (of course i'll be calling them on monday to find out...)

also could this have caused my low compression in one cyl? (thinking chunks of metal could be passed into the combustion chamber fucking up my christmas(and my rings)?

:(.....i proclaim august the month of fail for me

DAMN that sucks! Something made it past your filter for sure. Definately do some compression checking when you get that turbo replaced :noes: How could anything have made it past the maf, even if a piece of filter brace managed to fall off???? Wait, you have a map car, right? Check your filter, did anything come off? Hopefully plastic is what did it...

Finally, proof that small children/pets can get sucked in. That really sucks, Id check the intake for holes/missing material etc. That along with low comp in one cyl seems fairly suspicious.

well i checked the intake, filter etc...couldnt find anything missing.....

the turbo was only on the car for a month....and no surge at all during that month.....

i really think the turbo is defective......but i have no way to prove it so i have a feeling im going to get fucked......

this blows.......800$ down the drain.....

maybe gruppe-s will hook me up....but doubtful

if they say no right way, ask if you send in the old turbo, if they can give you come credit for it. i know very little about turbo's (learning more everyday) and shouldnt the exhaust side still be good? the shaft if the only thing that it messed up right?

yeah but i dont think gruppe-s rebuilds turbos...


does anyone know where i could send it to get rebuilt? maybe even get some porting done while it's getting rebuilt(gotta gain something out of this shit)?

Only turbo I've ever seen that looked like that was on a friend's track car, after his air filter fell off, and he ended up going off track during a TT event. Sucked some small rocks up the intake, and his turbo looked almost identical.

damn jefff , sorry to hear about the turbo - does look like something got sucked in and destroyed it. Hopefully it didnt screw up the cylinder to the point of not being able to fix it.
