Okay, so you buy a "good" turbo. Very little side to side shaft play, no in and out play, spins freely.

You throw the bastard on, fire your car up and it leaks oil out the exhaust side(yes it has a oil restrictor on it). No biggie puttin new seals on a garret t3

BUT

With the car @ idle the turbine doesn't spin.... WTF. It should spin at idle >.<

What would cause a turbo that spins freely to not spin at idle?(and the WG is closed).

Levi had the same problem with his, but I can't for the life of me remember what he said it was causing it. It happened after he rebuilt it. I think it was one of the clips in there got bent just enough to fuck it up.

Could be just enough side play that it's making contact. In-out play isen't as important as side to side play on turbos, any contact is death though.
