    turbo draines, re-use or new?

    just want to know what people do usually? my last car turbo wastegate was loose and had it turbo fully recon locally, while the guy was at it he cleaned out the turbo drains which were clogged with baked oil rather than putting new ones in, saved some doh.

    what do you guys do, as my car is 2nd hand i am fully expecting turbos to have been effected by previous drivers habbits unknown to me. what are opinions,,, [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/book.gif[/img]

    I think it's the oil feed and return pipes for the Turbo mate, its recomended that they are changed at the same time as the turbo, to help prevent oil starvation or contamination
