    Probable blown turbo help

    Hi and happy new year. After a few problems and a new exhaust manifold i think my vxr turbo has gone only after 10 months.

    Had erratic boost problems etc before when driving to currys, went in did some shopping, came out and had no boost at all. Boost gauge wont even come off of vacum on the reading.

    Manifold is also heating up alot and had the "chech oil light come on".

    Pretty sure its nakered but could it be anything else, as when my first turbo blew, i knew about it as there was a huge bang and a cloud of black smoke out the back. But nothing like that this time.

    I also have alot of oil dripping out of my baileys dump valve.

    Any help would be grately appreciated.
