Turbo Trial (ended)

17,100 miles and starting to show it

Pin It

After over 17k miles of somewhat severe driving the turbo is starting to show it's age.  Relatively young from a production turbo stand point (OE install) this after market eBay kit has held up quite well for it's price.  The turbo is still installed and working and still produces 10 - 11psi of boost at WOT.  I am however noticing excessive oil spit in the charge piping.  This problem was cured once with the installation of a valve to restrict oil pressure in the turbo,(Turbo oil supply line adjustable pressure regulation project) but is now back.  With the current oil pressure of 10 - 15 psi there is not much I can do about it.  The seals in the turbo are just worn and leaking.
