Upgrading LP Turbo - Opinions please
Just finishing up the assembly of my engine into the truck and was looking at my turbos...I honestly haven't touched them since they came off, just figured they would be in good shape.
Well... LP side has a little front to back movement, 0.04" or so. Hasn't touched the housing or anything however the exhaust side looks like it spent some time in the La Brea tar pits. It is backed on thick and hard. HP side is clean, so thinking I have a bad seal.
Anyhow, I could rebuild it
, but I think I will take this opportunity to upgrade. I don't have lofty HP goals, intend on running stock fuel for the foreseeable future.
What is a good size to up the LP side to and still have good street manners?
thx in advance
