Unhappy turbo ?

so the other night i was going through a field and my front tires just sunk i locked it in and i had to hold it to the floor for about 8 min to make it out of the field. when i finaly got out i saw some smoke ao i opened my hood and a think my whole turbo was glowing red it was very dark so all i could see was something glowing. i thought that maybe taking it down the road would cool it off while driving i noticed sparks hitting the highway. the next morning i went to crank it and all it would do is turn over and blow out white smoke for about two min then it would crank and run fine its did that twice

what do yall think it will take to fix it?

i was on extreem on the tw chip.

no egt gauge

Well, in the drag car world, white smoke would mean either a blown head gasket or cracked head.

I'd hate to see your valves and valve seats with you having it that hot that the turbo was glowing. I'd do a compression check on all the cylinders.

Send a message via MSN to pinkfloyd
what is the problem exactly? long cranking time to start? who knows what you did to the internals of the motor. getting it that hot, for that long, your lucky you didn't burn up your pistons, or maybe you did. 8 min. is a long time to be full throttle on an extreme tune. your egt's must have been through the roof. Good luck with the rebuild.

Its hard to know for sure whats wrong but after reading that I am sure something is. I would say at a minimum you have probably blown a HG. If your turbo isnt fried it should be.

yea...hate to say it...at the very least...i'd say blown head gasket and fired turbo. how does it shift when you get it going? you may have some issues with the transmission too. i'm sorry to say that you're probably gonna have to sink some major coin into it to get it back to good running shape...i'd get a compression check on those cylinders asap before anything else happens. as pinkfloyd said...you're egts would have been ridiculous. when i wail on my throttle like that just for a few seconds i see my egts skyrocket...sorry to hear that bro...keep us posted as to the damages
