    It finally let go.

    My original K04 has finally died tonight

    Shame, it made it to 61k. Ive refurbed it once.

    I got a sneaky feeling though the Core and shaft are fine, and its the manifold. There was a hairline crack over the wastegate along time back i think its just gave in.

    As when you drop right down on the revs you hear the turbine rattle, and itll boost to 0.1bar

    Turbo is fine, took it a blast and got 0.3bar the wastegates stuck open due to the manifold being cracked.
