Sorry I meant to post "EVO III" in the main title, but anyways. I checked the forums, and though I had seen multiple turbo related issues within, there was none that I could relate my situation with. I recently ordered a J-Spec engine to replace my old engine. On the old engine, I have an EVO III turbo setup, with O2 housing and custom turbo exhaust manifold, that I am swapping onto the J-Spec engine. The mechanic I have the car at now said that there is a "possible" turbo leak. First off, the turbo is only a few months old, and hasn't been ran very hard at all (the car has been sitting for about 4 months, and hasn't been turned on). Secondly, I don't have a clue how to fix a leak, or what the repair costs would be to fix this so-called "possible" leak. Lastly, where can a leak occur? I know there is absolutely no shaft play whatsoever, and the turbo is still clean as a whistle. Help is greatly appreciated.
