So I've had the cars for a couple days now and it's just great.

The trip out there and back was horrible with flights being cancelled and what not. Then it rained the entire drive home so I didn't have a chance to really play with the car without the tires spinning.

The roads were dry the other day and I was playing around with some pulls. It just sucks you into the seat and feels great. I have yet to put it to the floor though. I was riding along side a 1LE on the way to a show yesterday going neck and neck down the highway. God it feels good to keep up. I figure I could have taken him, I think I was only at 9# boost. He told me he could he the turbos screaming down the road. Oh did I mention they sound amazing? because they do and the BOV is just awesome.

I took a couple of videos of my AEM tru boost and AFR gauges while cruising around.

This one was just a small pull on the highway



Again it had been raining and my tires would only spin.




I was changing my rotors the other day and I saw this guy staring a me




I'll try to get some different videos. I need to get a gopro.

Glenn, I haven't really put any thought into a meth injection. The fueling hasn't had any issues and has been holding out great.

This is a clean looking set up! The turbos aren't hanging below the frame as it should be! It's tucked in nicely!

Woke up this morning and went for a cruise. I heard a new sound today. I think I have an exhaust leak somewhere around my passenger side turbo :-/. I can hear it when I push the gas. I'll lift it up tonight when it's cooler and start doing a hand over hand of the piping.

Turbine one good safe and cheap way to find a exhaust leak is to spray some Seafoam in. Just spray some into the TB while running then shut off fast. Let it sit for like 10min and have someone start it while you look under the car at a safe distance. Or wear some goggles to be up close on it when it smokes out.

If you have a buddy handy you can spay seafoam with car running the trick is not to spray to much into the tb to stop engine from shutting off but also have a bud to give it a little gas over idle. Smoke will pour out leak if there is one there also a video on YouTube about it I use this method on my car and my trailblazer ss work great.

THAT DOESN'T SOUND RIGHT. I have had leaks but nothing sounding like that. That's louder than when mine sounded like under WOT. Sorry to bring it up but it sounds like turbo failure?!

Agree with Cisco, I've had exhaust leaks, they don't sound like that. Sounds like something with the turbo

Hey guys. Thanks for the scary words. I couldn't find any seafoam. I finally cooled off and I went exploring. I pulled the shield protecting the turbos down and found something.

These three bolts on this split flange...


Well that's exactly all there is. The fourth one is missing and it shows rub from heat expansion clearly makes it seem like one was once there.


There are four on the drivers side and its clearly the passenger side making the noise.

also that video was right when i started up. It seems it quite up a bit once everything warms up.

soooo hopefully not that failure word.

That is definitely your problem. Those bolts are what hold the turbo together. Also allowing someone to clock them if needed to angle the houses for custom builds. Pull one off and go to local hardware store to see if you find a match.
