    Split DV diaphragm

    Hi guys
    I had my turbo off the other week and decided to check the standard recirc diaphragm. It has a small split in it.
    Recently I have been getting loads of chatter from the turbo.
    Would this be what is causing it and also would I be losing any performance from this?
    Cheers!

    If its split it will chatter. Some people say its bad for the turbo others dont. When mine did this it took the turbo longer to spool up again and will make it work harder to try and make the set psi because of the leak
