When cheap turbo's go boom...

Postby fujitsubo » Mon Apr 30, 2018 4:16 pm

Brought a ebay turbo for the 3.1 bighorn awhile back it has lasted around 40,000kms of pretty hard driving, lot's of towing/high temperatures etc.
Never made any noise's until the other day when hitting a hill towing a couple of ton, put my foot down and BANG
the shaft snapped.Luckily no engine damage as most of the metal got stuck in my very oily intercooler and inlet manifold.
Anyhow just thought I'd post this up so people can see how long these cheap turbo's may last it cost $250 delivered.

I had a cheap one which destroyed its bearings in less than 6 months.
