    Sad day for my turbo...

    Well after nearly 60k over 7 years it finally looks like my turbo unit is on its last legs.

    Turbo started chattering out of the blue and it looks like my oe dv has a split diaphragm as im getting no vacuum when i suck the end of the pipe running to rear bcs. Turbo has been hesitating a little on boost recently aswell.

    and my powersounder has gone too! annnnnnnnnnnnd i screwed a thread on one of the rear hubs(my fault)!

    So its safe to say my car is testing my love for it at the moment.

    Suppose things can only get better...i hope! If anything else goes too wrong with it in next few weeks i will contemplate breaking the bitch.
    For free hugs PM me.

    For sex, pm cabriomatt.
