Dear All,

Recently, i noticed that my engine oil level is decreasing .

Thus, i had the issue checked and found out that the shaft on the turbine ; near / on the fins are " shaking ".

Is it a norm for the shaft on the turbine to be shaky...?

Please share your thoughts on how i may solve this issue at best.

Thanks upfront for your good advise.

Regards,

Satria81

shaking.. or locally they call it goyang.. its on its way out bro..

suggest you find those who are upgrading their turbo on e7,8,9 to bigger turbos...and buy their used one from them. or if you want to upgrade..now is the time to buy a bigger snail!

hi ixeo,

thanks for advising. i truly appreciate it

yes...it felt like goyang too me too when i was asked to feel it...you are right

it is a good chance to upgrade, but i truly and really want to maintain my car at 100% stock..

do you know a garage that can do a good job and really dismantle the parts and reinstall them at best...i very fussy :)

cos some workshop, just dont do a clean job

famous workshop.. tong turbo. not cheap though.

if i am not mistaken, turbos from e9 improved versus e7. buying a used one may not be as expensive as you think since tong turbo's quality work doesn't come cheap.

I think you need to remove the turbo unit for them to repair...
vr2turbo,

thats the thing i was concerned; i felt too that tong turbo does not dismantle the turbine..

getting a workshop to dismantle the turbine and send it to tong turbo would be another issue..

I had problem with my TD-05. Shaft loose and leaking oil into exhaust and smoke like fogging mosquitoes...haha :biggrin:
My mechanic dismantle and I took it to Turbo Tong. Upon further checking found the casing cracked too, so I went and source a chop unit instead.....:rolleyes:

satria81,
I've been to SpeedSpin Turbo workshop.
They seems capable to rebuild any type of turbo base on your requirement.
Or they could suggest on something as they also experience in many ways.

Cost of rebuild seems reasonable and good quality hand works.

Give him a call: Bebolagalas ++019-243-4600

i have been suggested to drop in a stock evo 9 turbine to my evo 7.

can someone tell me what will be the disadvantage...

from modding experience previously, I am sure there will be side effects that is not good..

I for one, strongly believe the Japanese engineers had designed the evo 9 turbine for the evo 9 and it wont match the evo 7

my engine is 100% stock, no open pod filter, no after market exhaust...none...I don't even have boost meter and I do not intend to fix any of those...

all comments are truly welcomed
