I bought a used vf39 that I will be putting on after I get new injectors, tmic, and bigger fuel pump. I bought it because my stock td04 has a shade under 140,000 miles on it and got this one for only 125 so thought why not. I was wondering if and how I would clean the turbo since the outside and compressor wheel is a bit dirty. I was thinking brake cleaner or something of that nature but I have no clue if it will hurt the turbo in any way. Any firsthand input would be great. Ill add a few pictures so you can see what I mean. [IMG][/IMG]
I am not saying this is the correct way to go about this but I removed the compressor housing to clean it. I cleaned it with a wire brush and wiped it down with brake cleaner. Let it sit over night to fully dry and then put the compressor housing back on. This was on my 99 eclipse GST. I drove the car for 45k after with no issues before I sold the car.
