Unhappy KC Stage 2 Turbo Problem...

... I am heading to Gainesville (stopping off in Williston) from Orlando today. I am pulling a dual axle lawn trailer with only a zero turn on it. I get on I75 and get into some 3 hour traffic a lot of stand still and under 5 mph. I get to Ocala Hwy 200 and notice that something sounds and feels funny when I give it gas.

I get out in williston and when I shut of the truck i dont hear the turbo spinning like I normally do.

When I get back to orlando, I am going to pull the turbo and send back to KC for inspection.

Nothing on my SCT seems off still.

Anyone have an idea or have had any issues with their Stage 2 KC Turbo?

Do you always "pre-oil" the turbo before you crank the engine?

KC S2R. Are the lines typically supplied by the Turbo companies? or do I need to purchase that separate?

when you merge a thread it can sure make someone's questions look ridiculous

when I had asked about the MFG of the turbo that thread had no mention of KC turbo

The feed line are a ford factory part. But that shouldn’t matter.

Maybe the bearings too a dump if it’s the S2R

Hey guys... the best way to get help if you are having issues with a KC Turbo is to contact us directly. Sadly I am not on the forums all day every day.

Have you contacted KC Turbos yet?
