hmm how to check for a bad turbo

check for oil and carbon on the compressor side. its aluminum and not hooked to exhaust. also oil in intake and such.

try to spin compressor impeller. does it move freely?

check for side play by moving it side to side.

there will be alittle play due to bearing clearances. but shouldnt be too much. excess play allows impeller to make contake with compressor housing, there for junking your turbo. it may not even be considered for core value if thats the case.

o well, upgrade time LOL.
