you guys aren't going to believe this shiznigity, but my turbo STILL spools(just a little)!!! here's the bizaar thing, there's no oil in it, there's a screw driver in the compressor, the nut on the compressor is gone, the BCS is disconnected, AND the bleeder valve is twisted wide open!! and I still here it try and I can watch the boost guage hit +1 PSI!! I think that I am never going to get rid of this turbo because it is the posessed turbo from hell! Even broke, I'll still have it. Just to make sure that I am the only one that has the "Christine Turbo". Just thought that I would keet you guys updated on this...

That just goes to show how inaccurate the stock boost gauge is. What your reading as 1 psi of boost is actually 0 or just a little vacumn.

Hey, when my IHI took a dump, it began leaking oil, and woulld only boost to 6 psi. When I took it apart, the shaft had ONE HALF INCH of play along the axial direction, the compressor blades were all chewed up from contacting the housing! But it srill boosted! Didnt even make too many strange noises!
