Turbo destruction

Reason why wastegates, blow off valves and properly sized turbos are so important. Had my 71mm on the truck for a while and i knew it'd be a little small, bought it to pair with 250s when I had them. Tossed the s475 back on it and going to roll with that for a little while until I step up to an s480 when I get some 400/400s installed.

Holset hx50. It was a good turbo just was better suited for smaller injectors.

It was under warranty and got it returned. It was completely trashed. It was an awesome turbo tho, we knew going into it that it was a smaller frame than what I should have had. I think the truck will keep the s400 series.
