So I'm about to do the ccv mod!!! Here's why. The other day, while I was changing my power steering pump, I had to remover the intercooler hose on the drivers side. It was NASTY!!! :tard: It had alot of oily goop inside the entire area and I decided that that had to stop!

So since all that oil goop has been ran through my stock turbo, wouldn't it be smart to take the turbo off and clean it up???? :confused: Wouldn't that have an effect on the turbos performance?????

You could if you wanted, but I don't think its necessary. When I pulled my turbo with 75 thousand miles the compressor section wasn't full of oil at all:thumb:

You might want to consider a rebuild kit for about 100 bucks if you have it out:thumb:

you should rebuild the turbo for sure. the oil is most likely leaking by the turbo seals rather than blow by from crankcase.

A wicked wheel, x-wheel, or the stealth automotive wheel. One of those should be pretty easy and run from about $50-$80. Thats what i would do...Everything else i knoe of is VERY expensive
