Flexpipe/Mesh Pipe Users Inside
Precision called me and informed me that by the looks of my turbine something had gone through the exhuast side of the system and hit it. This caused the turbo to become out of balance which then destroyed the bearings and THEN allowed the compressor wheel to come in contact with the housing.
Expensive? You bet. Everything but the housings were bad.
Since i had not had any mechanical problems with the engine i decided to look at the exhuast tubing. low and behold...the flex/mesh pipe was falling apart inside and going through the turbo.
This is the flange connecting to the turbo. Notice the wire coming undone and being pulled towards the turbo.
This is what it's suppose to look like
Remove it if you have it.
