Decided that while I'm at it fitting the new turbo, I'll do me sump gasket. Took it all off, cleaned it all up. Noticed that there are several fractures in the sump internally, which I understand is normal. On a closer in spection, one of these was a bit bigger than the others, and feck me it goes all the way through!!! Hmmm, well i bolted it back on and put some oil in it over night and well bugger me it does go all the way through. Well at the mo it's just hairline, will get it alloy welded later in the yeah, am keeping an eye on it, BTW, it don't seem to be eating oil though which is good.
New Hybrid Turbo.
Finally finished fitting it today, took it easy at first and ran it over to NotNormals (about 100 mile round trip), just an excuse for a run really. What i did notice is that it's slightly more laggy than the standard one, but it does help when you do the jubilee clips up tight though, had a pipe blow off, oops. Need a new boost gauge now as it holds boost much better, and it doesn't drop off so quickly.
Very annoyed about my sump, but about me new turbo.
