probably either, the collector ring isn't on correctly, or you didnt align the turbo with the collector. Theres an alignment pin that the turbo falls in.

it can and has been done. Check the ccv tube, that mounts to the intake tube, wherethe "doghouse" is on d/s head. Maybe you forgot to connect it.

Happened to me when I did my exhaust last week. Adjusted it and re-tightened it. She's all good now.

it seems like everything is on right flush before i put the clamp on the hose on the doghouse is on i mean theres no loss of power or anything i dont think its going to hurt anything if it leaks a little but im not tearing the turbo off again to fix it or at least not rightaway had almost 4 hours into figuring out a way to get that back clamp on if you guys have dont it before and have any itips for next time please let me no

i just laid on the motor and reached around and got it all together.

its easier if you push the bolt through the clamp and hold the clamp in place and have someone else thread the nut on.
