Schmutz in my turbo/turbo inlet pipe

Recommended Posts

Took my turbo off today and found this black stuff. Its pretty dry but will come off with some encouragement, I was able to scoop some out of the bottom of the turbo inlet pipe. I have had a catch tank for a about 6 months so am I correct to assume this is just old blowby? Car has done low kms, in good health and was running close to 23psi. This doesnt look normal tho.

Thankfully I have a new turbo and turbo inlet :)

Looks more like oil pooling in one of the heads and pouring out of the breather, right into you turbo. Did you go to Manfeild before the catch can went in?


Not unless previous owner took it there.
