  1. I am interested to hear more. Kent Goldy ( of Cosworth), the guy who remans turbos for Carl Nelson mentioned he bores them out and installs a larger bearing.
  2. Thanks for your valuable input. What’s the full name for Precision? Location?
  3. OK, Ill check plugs and then compression for rings too if necassary. Thx. Comp rebuilt two turbos for me - one that I run and the original unit. They are re-rebuilding my runner right now and was going to install my original unit but I dont want to run the engine until I figure this fuel problem first.
  4. Good call. Is there a place on the pump I can verify? Or do I just pull the pump and have it tested?
  5. Hey Men, I am still chasing the cause of the fretting in my turbo bearings. However, I just did the first oil change on the rebuilt motor and found the oil reeking of fuel. Thinking perhaps oil dilution caused by; leaking injector; fuel pressure too high; or blow-by. Did i miss anything? Hard to imagine the above because when tuning after the rebuild, the wideband only read slightly rich - nothing crazy. And the motor ran very smooth. Eager to hear your thoughts.
  6. 05 Bracket 11651262590 06 Support plate 11651262591 I have one of these (05 Bracket) but forgot who I promised to send it to. lol 06 is bolted to the turbo and 05 carries the load by being bolted to the block.
  7. The fretted bearings are Aluminum. Comp Turbo wants to go brass next. They said there was evidence of some heat but it doesn't look like oil starvation to my uneducated eye. More like wobble. Any chance you could put a micrometer on yours for verification?
  8. Pulled turbocharger apart and found this. Comp Turbo rebuilt this unit 2 years ago and maybe has 400 miles on it. Thoughts?
  9. I thought White, Blue and Red were the three options. Red being the stiffest. Cant recall my source for that info.
