    Heres so pics attached, just need some second opinions to what I have a feeling is a blown turbo. Finally got wiring done on car after a long while of sitting and put everything together, started up the car , and when you press the gas theres white smoke coming from the exhaust as well as the exhaust manifold area . As well as a kind of grind noise every like 4 seconds. Found exhaust manifold wet from where it connects to turbo as well as some oil in the turbo , turbo has both in and out and side to side play...

    Yeah I would get a new turbo. That impeller blade is beat up pretty bad. Not worth doing a rebuild I dont think. Also depending how long you ran it for and the boost I'd worry about chunks going past the throttle body into the valves.

    That TB2566 is shot, sir. May it rest in pieces.

    Bolt the 68HTA on and run it at wastegate pressure until you can get some fuel mods and a tuning platform.

    I was going to suggest that but he would need a 90 elbow right? To connect the intercooler pipe.
