Turbo failure and dissection
Well I took my turbo apart. I've never taken any other turbo apart before and some things could have gone better. lol
Mine made a nasty whining sound when I started it up at the end of april to jump a neighbor's car. I didn't hear the whine prior to that. The last drive I took before that was when I had just retuned to the newest update from h&s for lower boost at WOT. It was too late for my turbo.
My turbo seemed to be ok when I first got it off. There was no noticeable metal in the tube leading out of the compressor housing, probably because it was run very little with it rubbing. At first I thought the rubbing must have been on the exhaust side. It wasn't. It was on the intake and I know why it happened that way now. I'll explain a little later.
I'm just going to make a bunch of posts with pictures attached so I can be clear about which picture I'm talking about. Here is a picture of the turbo after I got it out. It was leaking oil where the vgt solenoid goes into the housing.
2011 F350 4X4 CCSB SRW, King Ranch, 3.55, Mini Maxx, 4 inch exhaust, egr gone, Confederate Diesel turbo kit with a S363 and 0.91 twin scroll turbine housing, and stock air filter.
