My turbo has always this a bad thing? :-(( I kinda liked the sound, it certainly doesn't screech and I was only able to reproduce the smoke once out of four or five attempts.(He said re-assuring himself) If it's turbo repair time what's best option? New (gulp) turbo now before it gives up completely or a Turbo rebuild? OR cheapskate option, pull one off a scrapper? If I do this what should I be looking for? Please bear in mind that my mechanical knowledge is at enthusiastic amateur level, that's why Phil and Phil at Aeromotive do most of my mechanicals for me. PING Paul Halliday, didn't you get your turbo rebuilt somewhere local to us? (I preffered Grunffs valve seals idea....) Al
