nice surprise for me 2day as i was driving off i heard a nice metalic snap and a massive exhaust leak. stopped the car and had a look under the bonnet to my surprise my turbo turbine housing had snapped the weld and was resting on the turbine. Wicked just what u want. anyway it just touched the turbine so it may be rebuild time? housing f*#ked :evil:

How old is the turbo? Turbo wheels get rooted very easy if anything touches them
