How to check turbo condition?
I'm planning on ordering a TurboMaster wastegate controller very soon, but am wondering if I might be smarter to get a rebuild kit for the turbo to prolong its life first.
I know I've seen people say to check for play in the shaft and wheel condition. Is this on the compressor side only? I'm not sure if the shaft on the input side is connected to the output side wheel too or not. Do you have to check both sides?
Also, when checking play, are you checking for in/out AND side/side movement? With 95k on the original, I just want to make sure it's good to go.
Also what rebuild kit do you suggest?
Anyone know of a reputable shop in Detroit area for rebalancing?
Any help is appreciated!
