Have driven the car less than 2,000 miles since they rebuilt both units with steel inners.
Went for a drive on the weekend heard a bang and had some blue smoke coming out of my exhuast . Looks like of the the turbo's have blowen an oil seal running at 0.6 bar at the time and 1.1max. They where supposed to be rated for 1.4bar.:disappointed:
Can't wait for the reply when I ring them and see what they say when I get the turbo's out in a few weeks time.:spank:
I had a turbo technics turbo on my pulsar, rated to 1.5bar yet i ran it at 1.75bar and over 4 years on its still going strong.
i blew 2 turbo dynamic turbos within 2 weeks of each other before i found my oil feed wasnt good enough, yet it was ok for my RSP turbo, different turbos with different specs can need different set ups.
It´s quite interesting to see how many different controversial opinions there are! I just wonder how can it be that the same company does turbos that pull strong and are reliable and the same guys do turbos rated for 1.4 bar and the stupid thing goes bang while running 1.0 bar. I mean is there really no quality check anymore in these companies? Shouldn´t it be of companies interest to keep customers satisfied? :crazy:
Turbo are normally very strong and reliable, in my experience its the parts around the turbo that causes them to go pop and i've always been told that if you've got problems with your engine the turbo is the first to show it.
