Momentum and Nasioc "perons" have been having an on going struggle because of competitors talking this kinda crap....The guy that posted the pictures NEVER contacted Brian for a warranty claim, and if his turbo got “SUPER LOUD”, perhaps he should have taken it off the car and sent it in for analysis? Most turbo problems are OIL problems-the Subaru head is notoriously slow to lubricate upon startup (cold startup). Everyone knows that a good way to trash a subie head is to start your car in the morning, rev it up, and go. You do this one time, no harm no foul. You do this every day for a year, you have problems. Same thing with a turbo-in fact, the turbo oils from the head on those cars. The turbo draws oil from the cylinder head!
The bottom line is you CANNOT operate a turbo immediately upon
Startup; if you do, you have a problem. If you operate the turbo immediately upon startup EVERY TIME, your problem turns into a “turbo failure”. If you have an oiling problem with your EJ207 engine swap, same results. A turbo is a very fragile assembly-you starve it of oil once, you damage it. You starve it of oil for its entire life, it WILL fail.
I know a lot of people on NASIOC don't know this-that makes sense
because they have regular jobs. They are not turbo techs; they don't work in aerospace on jet engines, etc. They don't know how bad a turbo failure can be, and they can logically assume that the turbo is to blame because they don't know the factors
I would like for the guy to send his turbo to me/Brian for analysis, but he won't even return emails, so I guess that's that. It is important for us to analyze EVERY turbo failure that exists so that we can make sure it has nothing to do with what we are trying to accomplish. If there is a problem with our assy. process, we need to find it and fix it!
