    Taking apart my 7 bolt engine bay to prep for a 6 bolt swap and i find this on my EVOIII 16g turbo.



    Not exactly sure to do at this point. Do I need an entire new turbo or can I buy a need compressor wheel and rebuild?

    Would the exhaust fins be effected? (I plan to pull the turbo tomorrow and check it out anywas)

    PS there is no shaft play.

    First check the turbine wheel.

    Then if the turbine wheel is fine, a new comp wheel,rebuild,and an oil change,is all you should need.

    As well as cleaning out the IC for these parts of the comp wheel.

    You sell it to me, for like 20 dollars.

    No, but really, Bud is spot on.

    If your on facespace and everyone is. Look for a group called Turbo Lab. They will have the rebuild parts you need to buy. Youtube has video out their on how to do the rebuild.

    Check with one of the Supporting vendors or Freelancers here on the fourm for the parts you need.

    Forced Performance Or JusMX141 are just a couple that come to mind.

    Send that thing off to Turbo Labs and have them convert it to a 20g!
