So the turbo on the rx is blowing lots of oil into the intake and the shaft is slopy it still spools up. at the rally X last weekend it was blowing lots of smoke as it ran around the track.

here is the delima. I could go looking for another stock turbo. not to dificult espically since the car will be up for sale soon. or I could try to upgrade to either a WRX turbo $$$ or do the legacy turbo hybrid thing that I have heard of.

I understand there would be at least a new up pipe involved with the WRX turbo and thats not a problem I can fabricate something there.

does any one have some spare turbo stuff around? sugetions for a low budget? (under 200 bones). :cornfuzz:

you could do the legacy turbo.

or buy the turbo out of the turbo XT in the town I live in. (scio)

he'd sell it for like, $50 or $75

ok I grabed one from the junk yard and its just as sloppy as my old one:madder: as well as an intercooler that will not fit off a probe.

does any one know where to get them rebuilt at a reasonable price? or have legacy turbo parts????

dude, there's a JY with a perfectly good turbo in my town (Scio, OR) and he'd let it go pretty cheap.

I appreciate the offer, but I am sure the trouble to get that turbo from off that car and then down here to me would not be an inexpensive proposition. if I were a local up there I would take you up on that one.

Ok I guess I want to get crazy with a bigger turbo too
:slobber:

thank you , its the best thing I have got back so far.

sucks about the bunk score at the boneyard. :banghead:

there's a couple EA82 turbo's at moss landing now, and one Legacy Turb, intact still. Plus that XT that I mutilated still has a clean looking spider intake on it:brow:
