    Turbo is out ... loads of shaft play so most likely bearing failure

    Oily residue suggests that its sucking up oil to blow white smoke out the back :)

    Turbo has been sent off to A&E so that should be in the hands of Ben next week for a full strip down and rebuilt with stronger bearings and a totally new internal parts :)


    Well impressed with that picture of your turbo intake ^^^^^

    Looks like a water jet pump on a SeaCat ferry :) lol
