Turbo Gone Out!

You can disassemble the turbo and gut it. Disconnect it's oil feed line and plug it, and plug the shaft hle with a bolt, and be on your way. Teh car will run just fine, but you won't have nearly the power. I bought a car l;ike that, but it has the turbo now...

Basically your turbo went south, and ate up it's oil seals. Chances are it was from lack of lubrication due to coking of the turbo oil feel line. My turbo failed coming home one day--I got so P.O. about it, I cut the supply line with a pair of pliers, and folded it over on itself three times before crimping the mess with a vice-grips for insurance. Didn't leak, and made it the 50 miles home. The next morning, I was up early, stripped off all the turbo stuff, and put my Mikuini's back on for the drive to the MSA show. Got a few guys asking me "Wasn't this car Turboed yesterday at the autocross?"
