Lookie what i did...



I dont know exactly what happened, but i was coming off of an on-ramp at WOT, full boost, and the car bucked, and i heard a wonderful grinding noise, sounded as if there was food processor under my hood. Checked it out this morning and this is what i found.

Re: Lookie what i did...

Yes, thats the turbo inlet.

Sucking something up, chances are nil, i have a fenderwell intake, with a filter, and the VAM. If i sucked something up, both sets of fins would be mangled, not just the inducer fins. I think compressor surge might have gotten to it, and finally broke, im not sure yet.

Im looking into another hybrid, itll be a week or two before i can afford one, but i have the boost set as low as possible, and ill baby it. The bearings are fine, very little shaft play.

Ill probably take this turbo off, pick up a new compressor housing and wheel, probably a Super V-Trim setup, and a Stage 3 turbine housing, rebuild it, and keep it as a spare.

Re: Lookie what i did...

only time ive ever seen that kind of damage is people who dont use a filter and get something sucked up in there. the secondary fins arent touched because whatever got in there got destroyed by the larger fins at 40,000rpm. though since youre using a closed off intake system i dont see how anything got in there.

oh well, just another excuse to upgrade.

Fixing? Its getting swapped out for another hybrid, one better matched for my setup.

I just gotta baby it for 2 or so weeks so i can have the money for the turbo, oil feed and return lines, gaskets, and all the misc **** im going to need.

I guess this is a good time to get my FMIC in there, along with my cam and pulley.

Wow. If something didn't get sucked into the blades what else would have caused something like that? That's the only thing I can think of....

Theory is that compressor surge blew one of the blades off, and it took out the rest of them.

Re: Lookie what i did...

Turbo is totally cooked. Took my girlfriend home, and im coming through the neighborhood bellowing smoke. Bearings took a dump. Looks like im going to plug the oil feed, and baby it untill i get the new one on there.
