I'm guessing they didn't change the wheel when they did your warrenty work? Maybe there are some pre existing micro fractures for the previous failure? WOW! thats all I got to say! And, I will now be losing sleep over this worry about how long my turbo is going to last...

On the up side I'm getting very good at doing turbo swaps.. I'm just glad I took the time and effort to DIY rather than take it to a shop...

anyone with the HL wheel have the same problem?

haha wicked rcodea, especially doing it in 45min with a tmic set up, the fmic crowd has it EASY.

I have to do mine tomorrow, as well as trying to finnish up my part list install before my tune tuesday and hide some parts in the engine bay, planning for 6 hours...

no, the HL portion is on the hot side...no issues there to date...my failure is the 19T/compressor side...

Holy crap man....that carnage is unreal. I've never seen that happen. Thank God your TMIC stopped all the bits, and hopefully none of the little metal pieces made it any further.

This is just insane. I don't see how an OEM wheel could explode like that. Do you these wheels actually ARE OEM wheels?

Whats the chances that your turbo goes, you get a new one, then the rebuilt one has the genuine 19T compressor wheel fail due to material defect? Weird...

What I don't understand is at low RPM and only 3 psi, the compressor wheel is not spinning very fast. (comparitive to operating at redline under full boost)

Yup. 16GXT for me. The transient response is just not worth the headaches for me.

i know your compressor is what popped but is it possible mhi never put a 19t wheel on a td04h wheel for reason? the force involved could cause one or the other to do weird things.

larger compressor wheels would have to apply more load to the shaft bearings wheels and housing. is it possible its getting pushed beyond its limits? i would guess it might be causing some kind of internal vibration? compressor wheels dont just explode most of the time.

either way its a scary thought and a crappy situation. we need wolf to go flog the crap outta his car on wensday and see what happens

From what i have read if you get the Grimmspeed OEM header pnp/ceramic w/v2 x-over pipe you will get the spool back.

i honestly think im gonna buy the 16gxt this week

Problem with non-stock crossover is massive TQ loss downlow with little gain at the top, the opposite of what I want really.

no they have a new cross over pipe that does not cause those affect anymore. call them or go to the website and read about it. they talk about it somewhere on there. they now sell Ver.2 cross over pipes

I was going off that. I talk to GrimmSpeed all the time, I'll give 'em a call at lunch tomorrow. Ultimately, I'd end up sending the turbo and headers to them regardless. I've also got a v8 manifold I need to send to them too

As for their website, they've had the same description for that crossover for over a year now. I'll do more research.

EDIT: As a matter of fact, I saw someone selling their GS crossover pipe a few months ago because they lost so much torque down low.

I mean anytime you increase flow like that you're going to push spool back, I think their crossover is over %50 larger than the stock one or something? It's just physics... I'll let you know what I hear from them.

I have the V2 of Grimm's xpipe, I like the pulse it makes, although I would suggest buying the 3Xthick gaskets, I had to make 2 gaskets and use two metal ones on each side to make her fit nice and tight without leaks...

Plus with a tune: just this pipe alone, will yield a 7-10 awhp increase, the transition from cyl1 to cyl4 is improved, causing an exhaust pulse and gain in all wheel power, a win-win in my book .

I talked with Harvey at Boost Creep, and he said that he is down with exploring what this turbo can actually do. So we will start at a bar of boost and work our way up... I would love to try her at the 20psi range, but would settle for 18psi --- she does have 121k miles on the clock, not to mention my body/chassis is a '95 --- time will tell.

My "Monstah" goes in tmrw then will be driven Tuesday 2 hours to get my tune (keeping out of fuel loop, because of the fuel system --- thinking I may not need my Vortech FPR), then back 2hours...AND then the real test will come as I drive from CO to CA with this turbo/tune in my GF8 along with being all hunkered down with my life possessions... this all equals some serious fun subie tyme !!!

And that also equals over 2k miles of driving EEK!

Cheers,
~Wolf

correct but they use different housings and center sections. if they were subaru spec turbos i would agree with you but we have no way to know.

I wonder if you guys are getting compressor surge/stall which would hammer the bearings and possible shatter the compressor wheel?



From my Turbocharging performance handbook, I'm not 100% sure on the A/R concept though.
"Oversized compressor wheel and undersized A/R. Will tend to exacerbate the compressor surge by making it come up on boost quicker. Surge can damage bearings. On the plus side, the boost will come up quicker."

No I don't think thats the issue either. Our motors aren't really capable of encountering the surge section of the map on this turbo. (see compressor map).

Ryan: I'm wondering if there were some stress fractures as SHARP_DAL said, and then once the wheel got out of balance bad enough, upon the first impact of the compressor wheel against the housing...boom. I hope you didn't eat enough oil to ruin anything.

you dont need surge to cause problems.....putting a "bigger" or "higher flowing" wheel on the same shaft/bearings will cause more stress on said shaft and bearings.

i think this has more to do with the problem than anything. like i said above there could be a reason there was never a oem subaru td04h-19t.

anything spinning 100k+ rpms can easily be affected by anything as small as a gram in weight even if it was balanced correctly
