Default newly rebuilt turbo question...

okay...well i just got done with my rebuild and i noticed that the turbo would spin, but not as freely as it did before...

i barely BARELY have the turbine tightened,

i was wondering if there was a certain torque you were supposed to tighten them, or if newley rebuild turbos will feel like that at first.

the only oil that has gone in is the oil i dabed on every part as it went it.

make sure you tighten down the CHRA to the turbine housing evenly....
