Goodbye turbo?

Not sure what happened... coming home from work today and as I reached the top of a hill I heard a loud pop. Following this, the turbo sounded completely different - more of a whine than whistle...(stock 03 vgt) No smoke of any kind. Just changed oil and I can't see any fluids puking or leaking. I limped it home and I feel a tremendous loss of power ie: no boost (guessing as I dont have gauges). Maybe too much boost and it just popped? I haven't a clue... I was sitting around 2-2.5k rpm when it popped. Not sure what to do at this point. A Powermax may be in my future...

Re: Goodbye turbo?

Sounds more like it popped a boot off. Check the IC boots before you write off the turbo!

Wow... don't I feel dumb. The cold side boot popped off. Thanks so much for the help. Do I just reattach the thing? I read somewhere to use hairspray?

Got everything off but one of the clamps is history... are these clamps special or can i use anything that will fit? I'm thinking about double clamping it anyway..

The hairspray fix is a good one. I highly recommend it. You don't have to over-tighten your clamp and you'll have peace of mind that the boots will not blow off. Make sure the boots and turbo/pipe connections are clean and dry before you use the hairspray.

I ended up using an oddball clamp I found in the garage. It doesn't have a spring otherwise it is exactly the same. Does anyone have a part number or a place where I can purchase just the clamp (other than the stealership)? I would like to replace the current clamp with an oem one asap as I dont trust it...

Glad it turned out to be a simple fix, and not a new turbo!!

clamp

I get my parts from Tousley Ford on-line. Great prices!

Your boot probably popped off because of oil from your Crank Case Vent. Oil tends to saturate these boots and sometimes they are rendered useless because of it. If it happens again I'd replace the boots, and maybe look into a CCV reroute. Search around the forum and you will learn about the CCV reroute, it's a simple fix to reroute the air from the crankcase vent through a filter to catch the oil before it enters your turbo.

Glad you're back running!

The CCV reroute might not be a good idea. I think I read on here that the CCV is designed to put vacuum on the oil control piston rings to prevent blow-by. Without the CCV there could be a smoking issue at idle.
