Ok this is what happened-I have a small bend crack in my inlet pipe fron the turbo to the throttle body. Nissan want $410 for a new one. I have tried a couple junk yards but all of the cars there are NA not Turbos. Any suggestion. FYI-if you are in your turbo and hear a swoooshing sound from under your left foot around 2,500 rpm....you may have this issue.

find yourself a place that does custom intakes........... either have the whole thing made up or just the s pipe. Should be able to find someone to bend a new s pipe for less that $100........... or im sure someone on here would be willing to mail you one........ I found mine at the junkyard for $30
