My new turbo
#1224823 - 04/26/06 02:44 AM

Well I picked up a turbo from work. It was defective on the line because it was leaking oil. They scrapped it and I got it for free. I figure I can tear into it an figure out what caused the leak and then fix it. I'm guessing theres a seal somewhere that wasn't placed correctly during the assmebly process. Anyhow it seems a bit large for my 2.5L CSVT engine to be pushing it, so it may end up on my Camaro's 358. Assuming I can fix it. Anyhow take a look and toss out your opinions. It's a Caterpillar Perkins turbo, P/N 2674A348, it came from a 6 cylinder diesel. For the moment thats all I know about it.

Wow this went bad, first I swore I put this in the forced induction forum, and second why the heck is that picture so big? I shrunk it down the same as the other ones in imageshack?

Anyhow, Mod can you delete this? I'm just going to repost it in forced induction and fix the picture or at least try.

Thanks.
