    That would be called "Foreign Object Damage" AKA don't EVER run a turbo without a filter! :rant:

    I'd still drive the hell out of it :)

    And then I'd kill her and throw the body in da river.

    there is a stupid ass kid in my town that bought a t3, took it apart and ground all of the fins off of the compressor wheel...he told me it would spool faster...i was like umm no, but try it out, bet it makes great power(as i was walking away and laughing)

    p.s. i am going to see if i can get pics of it

    Here: try these on for size... I think what happened was oil starvation, and the oil bearing supporting the shaft wasn't able to maintain itself. I'll have to ask him again.

    I never knew there were so many retards in this country. If I can find the pics I'll post em, but my friend got a RSX for graduation, was in 5th at 7 grand then droped it right into 2nd for some odd reason. We took apart his block and looked like someone set off a claymore mine in all 4 of his combustion chambers.

    Nah- my buddy bought a used turbo, and the shaft was already damaged- just not enough to tell. After he installed it, the sucker failed.... had to get it rebuilt.
