Re: Hairline cracks... (Whiterabbit)

it souldn't cause to much of a problem.......Those hairline cracks are signs of a turbo over heat. If you were running this on your car before make sure u are getting the thing cooled properlly. If you bought it used i would have someone check out the condition of the turbo and possibly rebuilt it.

There are two hair line cracks around the wastegate opening in my turbine housing. Is this going to cause problems or should I just replace the housing or have it repaired?

Mine has the cracks too. As does the other housing I have. I have been told that the T3 internal wastegate ports develop cracks quite commonly...
