im wondering if anyone has an idea as to what wrong with my motor! Now i realise with out looking at it or listening to it.. its not going to be that accurate but i got a dodgy tapping noise coming from my turbo or turbo area as soon as i put any pressure on it / through it! Its a real clicky / tappy sound... the tapping gets faster the with pressure...

Engine sounds fine,
No loss of boost,
No smoke, No other symptoms at all.. that i can tell

i think, its been doing it a while, but recently started to get louder

any ideas??

it might be the waste gate rattling .this happened to me when i had my turbo rebuilt , bolts were left loose on actuator bracket , disconnect actuator arm and hold the waste gate closed with ur finger and start car if there is still noise could be turbo bearings?

You sure its not the Exhaust manifold leaking as they cause a knocking noise?
