Could someone confirm what they can see in this video? (Turbo related)

    First of all please excuse the poor video and it's quality, it was recorded on a borescope as its not the easiest of places to reach.



    Jump to 0:22 because up until then it's just me burning myself

    If you pause the Video at 0:39 you will see the crack in better detail

    It looks to me like the Turbo has a crack in it, would you agree? I'm only asking because I'm about to give the dealer a call from whom I bought it from 9 days ago and calmly tell him I have an issue that needs resolving.

    Thanks

    Have to admit that does look like a crack to me, but there are far more knowledgeable guys on here that I'm sure can confirm. Good luck getting it sorted

    No. I thought to just double check on here to see if it's defiantly a crack on the turbo and not on the manifold before I have words with the dealer.
