the engine is a rebuild, but the one buddy thinks the turbo seal might be shot.

the only thing that wasn't rebuilt was the turbo. If any of you guys have any guides at all regarding the turbo from an (88?) Turbocoupe 2.3 let me know.

Any tips at all would be wonderful.

Never run a heavy oil in a turbo 2.3 NEVER NEVER EVER. :nono:
Right now I have Quaker State premium 10W30. I was running synthetic in it for a bit.

Apparently, the turbo seal is the one thing that never got checked or replaced.

I checked the bearing at the impellor and its all good.

I did notice today that it was fine until my idle speed went up a bit (i presume that is when the turbo is fully warmed up) and that is when it started puffing.

So, I am going to try and take out the turbo and disassemble it and check the seal. just before the turbo starts at the center piece is all clean, so my next step is the turbine.
