Awww man, another awsome thread. I hope to see 100+ posts on this one too. I dont know about the apex seals though, sounds more like a stationary gear issue, but while your that far, apex seals would be good too.

LOL at the unicorn comment, awsome!

Can you describe the screeching? Is it like the sound when you step on a baby chicken or is it more like unlubricated, brutal man sex. Each are symptoms of different problems!

The turbo is pretty simple...either the turbine or compressor are hitting the housings, or its making positive manifold pressure. I had an old t4 journal bearing **** the bed and it started making a screeching noise...time to check thrust.

Can also be a seized pilot bearing, or throw out bearing.
