Hello fellow tuners and boost heads, I come to you guys for a little input from the guys that have been in the game a long time. Back in 2013 I had purchased my fp hta green, fp race manifold, fp feed line, fp inline filter (red), fp blue drain line all at the same time. Now I did not use this turbo until the I had gathered all my parts that I needed, ecu, fuel setup etc. Well long story short my stock 7bolt took a dump at 500miles, just locked up end of story. I had purchased a built motor from a member her with 0 miles. Got everything swapped over, installed all my parts off from the previous motor, fired her up, changed the oil, broke in the motor by going on some highway cruises and letting the motor decelerate on its own, changed the oil again at about 50miles, then at 500miles, 1000 miles and then once again at 3000 miles. I've been running Valvoline vr1 1030. Each time I would pull the inline filter and inspect it for any debris...none at all. The turbo is fed off the oil filter housing as recommended by fp and the filter is right off the ofh. Now I got my car tuned and at that time I noticed a tiny bit of smoke at idle, and it wouldn't smoke all the idle, kind of intermittent...came time to get the car tuned on 91 pump and e85. Well let me tell you guys this turbo performs beautifully, at 25psi on e85 I would log 49lbmin at 6700 and no sign of if stopping, maybe due to the jmf race manifold and fp2s. But I really really loved this turbo. It spooled plenty fast to be very fun driving around and I honestly say I was ready for 30psi...then my clutch goes... Fast forward to about 8000k miles.. I have 8000 on the motor, tre trans, and about 8500 on the turbo, Injectors, and anything exhaust related. Well that smoking came back with a vengeance..at first it was still intermittent but it would definitely smoke enough to make you want to drive the car off a cliff...but it would only smoke at idle and never under boost. So I started messaging and reading and came to a conclusion that I possibly have a valve seal going bad. Or so I thought. I went ahead and did a compression test 160 on all 4 cylinders, leak down showed 10% across the board. So at least my motor is healthy. Up to about 3 weeks ago I was driving the car and when I came to a stop, take a look behind me and my car is smoking like a freight train, it never stopped smoking just kept coming, under boost, off boost. I parked the since then. So now it's time to tear into the car, i fire her up and at around 40sec my car starts to fog up the yard with smoke.I go and check my turbo, and it has a crazy amount of side to side play and no in and out, and does look like the compressor wheel touched....now I'm thinking to myself oooook. Didn't have that when I previously checked it. I go and pull the turbo and the o2 housing, turbine housing are soaked in oil. My exhaust ports have a lot of carbon build up but no real trace of oil. So I guess my problem was obviously my 8500 mile fp green..so I do what anyone would do, email the company I purchased my unit from. Now I didn't really expect them to even take the time being that I've had the turbo since 2013, but I told them what had happened and it only has 8500miles. We've exchanged a few emails. They mentioned they would need to look at the turbo to see what happened, I had thanked them for even considering to help me out, but then came a few emails that I have to share with you guys and get some opinions. I asked fp that if there was anything they could do and if it is something they may warranty if I could possibly upgrade to a hta red. The weekend past and I finally got a response. They asked me if my catch can setup had a vacuum source... I'm over here like no. I run mine like almost every other setup...2 lines to the catch can from the valve cover. Here is their response...I've attached a screenshot of a email they sent me. So what do you guys think...I don't want to bash on them, but I did follow everything they said, bought everything they recommended but I really just wanted a simple yes we'll help you out or no. I'm possibly going to look into a either a Holset turbo and t3 setup unless they help me out.
