Cracked turbo?

Recommended Posts

I have a forced performance red turbo on my 06 lgt. It's about 5 yrs old and the turbine housing keeps rusting on me. The compressor housing doesnt rust at all. Is there something that I can apply to the turbo to make it stop rusting? I cleaned it very well with a wire brush and I may see a crack around it, however it looks much more like a molding cast spot. Has anyone had a turbo housing crack or break? Its got less than 10,000 miles on it and was tuned on a dyno at tpg tuning. Though I dont have an egt sensor I haven't ever seen anything that would make me believe that it gets too hot.

Having trouble uploading the image of the turbo.

No I haven't talked to forced performance yet because its Sunday and I just saw it today. However great idea, yet simple and strangely enough went right over my head. I definitely will tomorrow. I will give the pic posting another try. Thanks
