New turbo is here!!

Got my new GT38R in today! UPS guy made a comment about how I'm "getting to be a regular." Haha, I told him not to get used to it, I only have so much money.

Anyway, I of course had to take it out and check it out since I need the rest of the parts before I put it in and now I have a question. There should be a little bit of play in the compressor and turbine right? I can actually see it move side to side if I press it back an forth with my finger, but I would assume that as hot as all that stuff must get it will tighten up as it heats up, and that is normal right? It doesn't touch the sides, so I guess it will be good. I just get real careful and tend to worry too much when I am messing with $1600+. Thanks.

There will be a little shaft play since there isn't oil in the bearings.

I think the housing should be a little loose when it gets shipped to you. You need to be able to adjust it once you install it to line up with all the plumbing and then you tighten it down.

Layson is right. There will be a little play due to no oil in the bearings. If you pour a little oil in the feed and rotate the turbo it should tighten it up quite a bit.

If only I didn't waste my money on a new stock turbo and ATS housing...I want a 38r.
