    Finally got the right tool to remove the head bolts and got the head off today to remove the turbo.
    Once the head was off, started removing bits attached to the turbo n found this in the intake pipe

    [​IMG]

    First thought was that a bolt somehow got in the intake which then got sucked into the turbo n screwed it up but then realised it was the shaft.

    Then noticed the intake side of the turbo was cracked

    [​IMG]

    This is what the inside looks like or lack of it

    [​IMG]

    I don't know whether it cracked which distorted everything so the turbine went everywhere or it cracked under pressure from the turbine...going everywhere.

    Now need to find out whether either cr turbos or TDs will still take it as an exchange to hybrid or whether I'll need to purchase a new hybrid from them.

    Somehow nothing got through to the engine, didnt even get all the way out the charge pipe so I doubt there will be anything in the exhaust. The exhaust turbine was still almost perfect, hardly any play n it spun nicely too.

    Also forgot to add my exhaust manifold is cracked as well

    I'm not really sure, one minute I had boost the next I didn't n above is the reason lol. Ah well...its a good excuse to go hybrid, missus thinks I'm just replacing everything with stock. Little does she know mwahahahahahaahahahahaha....ahem...sorry about that :whistle2::ninja:


    Oh and just installing a demo on the ps3 atm which seems to be taking it's sweet ass time about doing so.

    IIRC you found bits of metal in the charge pipe? Is there anything obvious that made it to the cylinders? I think I would have all that apart and clean it out tbh... :(

    Bad luck mate...

    Yeh there was some in the charge pipe but it all sat in the part where the baffles used to be. There was nothing in the cylinders or on the vavles, not even the smallest pieces.

    I will be getting a fmic and upgrading all the hoses so everything will be turbo free if anything got further.

    Right...I phoned both TurboDynamics and CR turbos, both were busy when I phoned n TD were the first to call back (well CR didnt call back) so TD are coming to collect it tomorrow to see what they can do. I can get about 25% discount with them too which is good.
