Turbo not spooling anymore
Hi WRXtuners.com, I'm new to the WRX community and i'm a turbo system noob. I just bought my first 2004 WRX 2 weeks ago (my first turbo car) and recently last night the turbo stopped spooling for no reason. It was spooling yesterday morning when i was going to work, but when i left from work, that's when i noticed that i didn't hear the whistle/turbo spool anymore after work. I've read info about this and research. I checked the wastegate; e-clip was still there, I pulled it apart and pull the rod back and forth, it felt hard to move it. I've heard from people that the turbo is done and that i need to buy another turbo. Also, i forgot to mention that when i was cruising, the boost gauge showed somewhere at 10 psi and when i let go the gas pedal, it showed 25 psi, does that make sense? sorry for long post, but i like to be specific. What you guys think?
