that is usually but not always caused by excessive heat.

by the way there are other turbos out there equivalent to elite vgt-ss
for a little over half the price, and they are just as good.

I have a brand new LIPD VGT stage 2 turbo that I will be selling soon. I put it on my truck for a two days, and I had to take it off due to me selling the truck! If interested let me know, I will be selling right!
