no, it's only a little bit of oil, heritage of oil vapors recirculation. When I bought the oil catch can I plugged the hole.
PS: hopefully, there is not axial play.

I'm really thinking to buy another chinacharger and disassemble this one just to find out if any of the garrett journal rebuild kits are compatible with this one

why would you want to do that vs just buying a used journal garrett needing a rebuild?

I have nothing against chinachargers, but if I was sinking brand name money into a rebuild kit I'd be doing it to a brand name turbo and know that both will work with each other.

I live in Italy, and all named "garrett" are really expensive!

example: new potato

I didn't find anything used on egay europe...

Yeah, that's a new spud, they are just as expensive here, and that's a ball bearing unit, I was talking about a journal bearing garrett, there a tons of those, and they are cheap both here and there.

I think you are right, but wat's the journal garrett with closest dimensions?
I really like how it's running the engine with this chrubo, it has a very high top end, and I prefer to mantain car as it is

I also did several sixth gear pulls with no issue at all, maybe I've found the perfect turbo for NB's?

it works!!!




For the test I unscrew the waste actuator down to 5.8 psi: the allofit button rise the pressure to 7.5 psi almost instantly
I laughed a lot while driving, other people may thought I was mad

next step is to make it on a board and set it to 8 psi normally and 12 psi with "allofit switch"

Back to work to find a massive manifold leak





This will be replaced with a 2.5" dynomax turbo muffler












Here it is!





I have to shave all...

Yikes. to destroy a MLS gasket like that you had to have stretched a stud or two, or the surface wasn't straight to begin with.

I was also advised against using a gasket there for that very reason. I've got mine bolted with hardware that cost me a total of under $20 and its been holding. I'd see signs of a leak on my manifold but nothing.

By the way I'd replace some of the clamps you have for your charge pipes. T-Bolt are the best but some of those really thin worm drives you have are not good at all for boost.

Also: ironically, "turbo" mufflers are not good for turbos. You want a large, straight through muffler. The turbo-labeled mufflers have chambers and bends inside which are not good for turbocharged vehicles.
