Ever wondered what a good vs bad turbo looks/performs like?
Well a gt28rs at 10.x psi did this on my 1.6l with a damaged wheel.
As you can see... still made power... but laggy :(.
This is the turbine wheel (foreign object damage from previous owner)
That is no good... I was "lucky" it wasn't super unbalanced... destroying itself and other things over usage.
This is what it should look like (just got the replacement)
Gotta love Garrett OEM boxing.
Packed with foamy love...
Just nestled in there.... awwww
Healthy/NEW turbine wheel..
47.2mm x 60mm goodness
I'll be doing another comparison dyno with the new turbo soon. I have some broken manifold bolts and turbine housing bolts that need machine shop attention first though.
Stay tuned for the comparison though.
