Working on TurboSevenThree's truck repairing the up pipes. We are half way done and will finish the other half in the morning.


Man I am short....


UH hey who took the turbo...


Hmmm... Maybe we should ask a tech!


Doh... Maybe we should of had a tech do this!


Yeah we broke some bolts...


But we found the turbo relaxing on the chair...

Tomorrow it will be all back together and running. Beer and duct tape maybe involved during reassembly.

It was not leaking at that spot so we left the uppipes attached to the manifolds .

At how many miles do they normally go bad and start leaking? i'm just wondering when i'm going to have to do mine:doh:
Well I don't know for sure how long they've been bad, but mine's got 184k on it, Scott's has 166k and his are bad too but not as bad as mine. Look for soot on the firewall and down on the firewall by the tranny's heatshield, and you can sorta hear it if it's leaking bad enough (mine were)
