Turbo inspection

Heres what i found when i pulled my turbo apart to clean it. Not to bad for 130,000 miles. I see no rust or scale and my veins were free as bird. All this is taking place in process of my EGR delete, new oil cooler, and studs and gaskets. Plus a few other things. Anyway im still gonna clean it. But i just wanted to see what some of yalls opinions were. Turbo inspection-turbo_vanes.jpg

I would still clean it and use anti-seize upon reassembly.

Oh thats a definite. It got cleaned and a healthy dose of never seez. Its all good in the hood now. I was just baffled by how clean it was with the mileage and the fact that its now 7 yrs old.

what did the cam slot in the unison ring look like? It's usually a good idea to throw a new one in while your in there

Cam slot looked good. Still looks new. And no wear on the vein slots either. I dont know if its the fact that i drive it like i stole it or that i dont let it idle for long.
