Didn't think too much of it, until yesterday evening when the car wouldn't boost at all followed shortly by some ugly sounds from under the hood. Looks like the turbo had some balancing issues and the wheels are hitting the compressor housing, literally causing it to stop spinning. So back on goes the 34 next week until I get in touch with our Fp vendor and Fp, and decide what turbo to get now. (hint: it won't be a mitsu dammit!)
Damn i thought was just mine turbo. When I was a "DSM Tuner" (I hate mitsubishi now ) but yeah I had a nice 400 WHP eclipse. Of course the constant problems but it was fast lol. I had a Big 16G Ported and clipped 10. The exhaust seals went out after 7 Months. I bought the Evo 3 big 16G. Bigger wheel and lighter. Big horse power gain yeah cuz the wastgate spring was @#%ed up and was boosting over 2 bars uncontrolably. Everything Mitsubishi sucks that I have owened.
