Default My luck just keeps getting worse.

After i fix my car due to the run in with that pesky curb, i now blow my turbo! or atleast i think i did. my car is making no boost now and the turbo wines really loud when i try to hit boost. it sounds like a saw or a dentists drill when i get around 3k. the car is smokier then usual. also my oil was low. it looked kind of thick at the bottom of the dip stick, like chunky i guess. it was changed a little under 4k ago with mobil 1. i am guessing the turbo is done.

my mod are turbo xs stage 2 plus and up pipe. i have run the car at 15-16psi since 5k miles. the car now has a little over 37k on the clock.

does anyone have a turbo that they want to get rid of a.s.a.p. i need to get my car back ont he road by tuesday. let me know if could lend any advice or sell me a turbo let me know. thanks.

All the sounds you just mentioned are of a blown turbo...

I imagine you have some mods right? if not take it to the dealer...

if so dont sweat it. ive seen acouple people in the classifieds with stock turbo's for sale. if you have the money of course get a bigger one...also do an oil change, and when the turbo is off check out the wheel on the compresser housing side to make sure sh** didnt blow through your intake.. im sure my turbo is next, and it has happen before...dont let it get to you.
