SIDE NOTE (and could be a big problem):
- Had a guy that supposedly knows a lot about turbo chargers look at it and he said my turbo is no good for anything more than 5psi, if that, because it is "dusted" because he says the impaler blades are polished/sand blasted, meaning that debris was going into the turbo from the intake side.

- I won't say anything else now until this is confirmed or denied by Top Speed and possibly another place or two, but if this is the case, one of the companies here is gonna have a very pissed off customer for selling me a busted turbo.
