hey guys i just bought a te04h mitsubishi turbo off ebay, and im concerned about it. When i spin the shaft, its makes a pretty loud metal to metal sound, as if its rubbing the inside. The fins look like they clear the housing well, its a standard bearing turbo. the guy said it was sittin gin his shop for a while, could the loud metal to metal sound be from it being dried up? oh btw it has very minimal shaft play, not enough imo to be bad bearings, but you never know. Im not too familliar with this type of turbo and i just want to see if anyone can possibly provide some insight, thanks

i did shoot a little wd40 in there, not a ton to drown it but enough to rotate it, still makes the metal to metal noise. Im honestly leaning toward it just needing actual oil to lubricate it and it would calm down.

it has to be contacting the housing somewhere. a turbo should never make a metal to metal sound. take the housings off and see for yourself

sounds to me like you got screwed on the deal. i sure hope you didnt pay much

IMHO the te04h is a waste anyways. i ran one, horrible powerband. sure you get full boost by like 2100rpm, but i like my power to carry past 5k...
true that.

but i must admit, i had one on my stock ZC VTEC and it ran 13.2 on street tires, at 106.8mph.

not bad.....

It could be a bunch of things. They are all bad but some could be worse. It could be a bent shaft, bent fins, build up in the exhaust housing (I just broke apart a 14B that was pinging because of this), bad thrust bearing, etc, etc. Did you check the play with a dial indicator? Also what is the in and out play (this is more serious then the side to side)?

What model is this turbo? What car is it from?
