It's hard to be objective here. It's going to spin, and shortly stop. there should be no, or an almost inperceptible amount of radial or axial play in the shaft ends, and absolutely no "crunch" when spinning it.

What if there is a little "crunch"? I put my stock turbo back in...but car hasnt been started up yet and there is a very faint click to the wheel when I spin it gently. Not everytime but sometimes.

Try pressurizing it with some oil. pour some oil in the top, grab an air compressor air nozzle and lightly "pressurize" the top port you poured the oil in. That should force oil around the bearing to support the structure. Then retest it.. If it still crunches... pull it.

It is a ball bearing turbo.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the VF22 is a sleeve bearing unit - not to be confused with ball bearing units.

you are wrong.

it is CERTAINLY not a sleeve bearing.

over the years, testimonies to it being both needle and ball bearing have been made.

either way, it isn't a plain bearing.

the grinding actually sounds like chewing in a way its not that bad. is this because of the oil not being pressurized or is the turbo bad?

Well, like I said, try pressurizing it. It's SUPER simple to do.

no worries. the only reason i have the knowledge is because i've followed the saga for a while now!

as a little side note, the vf23 chra is the same as the vf22, so the same bearing exists.

also, fwiw, the actual pics i've seen of a disassembled chra showed ball bearings. see them here.

oddly enough, deadbolt/jerry himself insisted they were roller bearings, so...
