How bad is my turbo?

How bad is my turbo?-img_0087.jpg

How bad is this chip going to effect the durability? I have an extra turbo I just dont have the Time/Space to put it in this winter.

Im ready to start doing some mods I just want to make sure the turbo is going to be able to take the extra abuse.

Going to upgrade the air filtation system first then some gaugues and eventually a chip if everything is running properly

What went through it to cause that ? I would remove it . It is out of balance and will beat itself to death , eventually sending crap through the motor .

^Like he said if its out of balance it will chuck itself apart. But I'd check for shaft play and see if the wheel contacts the housing at all. Is there any scuffing on the housing? It might last for a little bit, but I would be considering the new turbo shortly.

It will run. But it WILL come apart.. These things spin INSANELY fast.
And any part that disconnects will go straight to the motor. You got LUCKY that the first
chunk didn't give you any problems..

If I knew my turbo looked like that I would be parking my truck till I put a new one on. A turbo is alot cheaper and easier fix then a new engine! When that thing comes apart it will take everything with it.

if it were me, id check the compression. that metal went somewhere...

i dont recall if the intakes on the heads have screens, that being said, if your lucky it knicked the piston and left when exhaust opened. if youre really really lucky it went into the piston bowl and left on exhaust.

They don't have screens.
And it's sounding to me like he got really really lucky.. Because he'd know if it got caught in a valve.
And it'd be white smoking if it knicked the wall.

agreed. sounds like a great time for an upgrade. while your at it, might as well make full use of the new turbo and put in Stage II sticks. while your in there, you could upgrade the hpop, sicne your that far already might as well upgrade the intercooler and intake, and put in a regulated return. and your going to need a tranny upgrade for all this, while your under the truck put in a Dana 60 if you have an F250. be sure to get your chip reburned.

This should yeild sufficient power for daily driving. if not, go stage III and head studs...

lol lets not get carried away!

I bought my truck with a blown motor so I had to put a new one in. I found this engine with tranny at a local junkyard. Truck was rolled so i figured the drivetrain was good. I never got a good chance to look at the turbo before the motor was installed so I dont know how recently this has happened. The motor runs great I was impressed how much Tq there is stock! Truck doesnt smoke much unless you are being wreckless. Nor does it burn oil. Started up great this morning at 25 degree F.
