Re: I think my turbo is blown!!! AAAAAAHHHHHH! (GTI2lo)

quote:[HR][/HR]what goes wrong with the valve guides? I have 185-190 compression in every cylinder, I don't think the is a leak. It will hold stead for 2 mins.[HR][/HR]​
Valve seals have nothing to do with compression, do a leak down to pinpoint possible engine sources of the burning oil.
According to Turbonetics, VW's oil pressure is too high for the turbo seals. The pressure needs to be reduced for the seals to live long happy lives.
