Took some pics of the fins also to check them out while DP was off.
Didnt seem to be any play,cant say much for the fins.
133K on this, looks kinda ruff. :(

Pulled this one from under the turbo where I was getting a knocking noise, seems to be the plug that was in the worst condition.

Indeed, was a long overdue day for the plugs and esp along my inspection expired on 2/13.
Not to often I get a day in the garage without having to worry bout the kids raising hell in the house. !Laugh! :rocks:

Chuck, get a feeler gauge for next time. They are SPOT on for gapping. I like Maint days in the garage with no kiddos.

AllExtinct 03-04-2013 10:53 AM

I'll keep that in mind Paul, I never gap them mostly just check before install.
These ones went in gapped at .030 and came out. 040.
I'm kinda mad at myself for slacking on the plugs for that long.
She purrs like a kitten now though. Besides for the squeling.

133K on those fins they look fine. Not going to be brand new but that turbo's still got some life left in it!
