For having 192k on it, there's nothing that I'd be alarmed about. I'd say its in good shape.

Sorry for the dumb question.


How do you go about getting that view of the turbo? Is it difficult to get to?


I would like to take a look at mine.

To the OP, for those miles, the blades look fine. I don't see anything wrong with it. And to the other member, if you remove your air intake from the inlet of the housing, you can see the wheel.
