-Sold my turbo, thanks Bmylez, and waiting on a new one, hope is soon.
You have got to be kidding ? They swapped out your cams. WTF. I would of lost my mind. What did they tell you ? They should cover the cost of the rebuild. That's terrible. I hope you have better luck now. Who is doing the rebuild now ?
