So as some of you read the previous thread about my turbo sounding like a Supercharger. Well , today I went to Felipes to install a turbo he sold me since mine is trash. We pulled my old turbo and can anyone guess that there must have been some foreign object that fell down the TIP. Turbo was on its way out anyway but DAMN

It bent all the outer fins and literally gnawed at them took DEEP chunks out.

so where did all the metal pieces go? into the oil? into the engine?

I don't understand a small electrode broken off a sparkplug can destroy an engine, but 14 bits of metal off an impeller does nothing....

the small pieces were dustified (lol) and most likely reside in the smalll puddle of oil from my intercooler from the blown bearings in the old turbo.
