Here lies a picture of a spare part that was shaken loose by the Royal Mail in a 2nd hand part I purchased (in known state) from one of our Moderators.

I'm sure he will come forward and explain how it got there......

it was me ...
turbo had been smoking (a bit )previous to this
and in a quick up shift ...pop and a cloud of smoke out the back and no boost...
now I know where the turbine went !!!
I also think the mbc was putting a wee bit of strain on the shaft...
this was also the turbo that had siezed about 40 k miles previosly to this so I got my monies worth

Scaero showed this item to me today. It's quite small, but it's a hefty weight of metal. Ylee - the postage would have been a lot cheaper if you'd shaken this out first

Wow is correct!
May I ask what kind of boost pressure you were running through the MBU when the turbo grenaded? Just so I will dial in a little less, you see. Can't afford a turbo replacement right at the moment!!

Regards,

John

it was about 1.4 /1.5 bar ..max because of spiking
I think I was running on a bleed valve at the time ..but as I said the turbo was on the way out anyway...
