How much turbo fin wear is normal?
I have a '99.5 with 175k miles on it and I'm going to check out the turbo wheel tonight for play, wear, etc. A year or so ago while I had my intake hose off I quickly glanced at it and noticed the edges were shiny and they had some tiny, tiny nicks out of a few of the blades. How much wear is normal for that many miles? About how much clearance should there be between the outside of the blades and the housing? Finally, does anybody have any pics of what normal wear and excessive wear would look like?
Just FYI, turbo spools up fine and has been putting out the same amount if boost for the 3 years I've owned it so I dont suspect anything is wrong but I want to check it out anyway.
