slow..how do you n/a guys do it?
Jack the compression up, run a hotter zfr5 plug, set base timing to 20° advanced, since its a d15 retard that cam timing, add a bit more fuel, and port match your intake 😃 still not gonna be fast, but you wont be bored.

that sounds like more work than slamming together a slimeball exhaust mani and a greasy used turbo...

he's half way there ,got the greasy turbo and the makings just got to slam it together.

one day I'll call up Willie and see if he has any used genuine holsets

so figured I would give rebuilding the holset a chance

I like the crusty o-wing .
I wonder .does china just suck at installing o-rings or was I not supposed to run methanol through the turbo without the "proper" seals?
you can see bits of rod bearing hanging out one the thrust surface..
chra sure got rusty..:)

138545

and some more bearing partially blocking the feed line .maybe a filter in the turbo feed could have saved this thing ,,one day.

I have installed the turbo and started some boost tuning .doesn't seem to smoke more after install so good for now .
on the first drive even with open wastegate it felt so much better like the engine had the urge to go vrrROOOM !
seeing 5psi at 4000 right now .
