    Blown turbos...

    I've read some users on here experiencing problems with blown turbos. I just wanted to start a poll and a thread so we can start to understand the problem a little better, sorry if this has been covered elsewhere

    I think the following information will be of use to anyone considering uprating their Zlet turbo. Please can you provide the following details:
    1. Which turbo unit
    2. What software map
    3. What intercooler
    4. what air intake and filter modifications
    5. other engine mods
    Also if possible, could you also include details of the cause of failure, i.e. excessive heat, blown seals etc....

    MODS, please could you sticky this, provided of couse you think its of interest
