    Hi guys does anyone know if there is a gasket between a vxr turbo and the manifold please as im thinking about changing it as ive got some weeping oil coming out of one of the little bolts.

    Cheers

    There isnt a gasket there, if you've got oil there then the oil seal is buggered on the exhaust side of the turbo.

    The oil must be running onto the bolt, it can't be coming "from" the bolt.

    Probably not what you wanted to hear

    Great its only been on the car for about 3 months ive hardly done any miles in it.

    It was like that when it came back from Turbo Technics. Its was brand new when i sent it to them the turbo runs great and i get no smoke at all from it..

    What would happen if i left it.?

    I might have to take it off...

    I cant understand why its done this it did it more or less as soon as i fitted it, I didnt adjust the actuator but ive got the ipf 245 bhp map running so it should be fine shoudnt it?

    Rhys isnt happy.
