Just my luck.....
Well got my injectors out today and sending them off tommorow. Thats good news right? But, I have a problem. When I took my intake off my turbo I noticed that the turbo side of the boot where the clamp holds it to the turbo was ripped underneath the clamp. No big deal, I'll just buy a new one. But, when I removed the intake and boot I noticed that the edges of the fins on the turbo are wore terribly, from dirt entering the turbo I assume. I just convinced myself that I wouldnt get a turbo till spring to avoid spending so much money now on injectors and intercooler tubes and such. Now I find out that I need a turbo. I could get a stocker for cheap money but, in order to get the hp. I want out of this truck in the spring I'm gonna need a bigger turbo. The truck has 165K on it, is there gonna be some wear to the fins? I have always messed with newer trucks with lower mileage and never seen this. My question is, do I put a new stocker on that might last a while or spend the money and get a bigger one? The turbo spools like any other OBS that I have rode in, and has really no performance problems. Just wondering what someone else would do I guess....:shrug:
