I salvaged my turbo from a prevous turbo build and just recently got a chance to look inside and i found a hair line crack that comes off the wastegate hole it's not very long and i'm not sure how deep it is, if that matters. Is there anything I can do to fill the crack or is it junk?
( It worked fine on my prevous car )

I'm going to guess your useing a DSM turbo, if so I woulden't worry about it unless the housing is ready to break apart.

I've heard of alot of the WRX turbos cracking in the same spot you mentioned, near the wastegate. Everyone I know that uses them on honda's take the waste gate off and weld the spot shut and convert it for external wastegate.

However, I haven't heard of the crack getting any worse, although it might.
