On the road went to accelerate hard coming off an on ramp and the car jerked and hesitated. I tried the pedal again and it I got this nasty spoons in a garbage disposal sound. This is my first turbo to go on me :icon_cry: Luckily it happened near my work so I flatbed towed the car to MachV (right down the street) where Mike will take a look at it on Monday. Won't know anything until then.

I do know I need a new VF43...so anyone got one for me? Let me know. Thanks.

Update: Engine is dead but don't know if the turbo is okay or not. Will update when I know.

Off an on ramp?:huh:
Off ramp, on ramp...it's all the same to me. I was going off one fast 4 laner to another fast 3 laner.

But seriously, silver lining on that cloud says bigger and faster:biggrin:
I am already pretty fast now at 300WHP...I don't want to go through the hassle of a retune right now since I start a new job on Monday so I just want to go with the same turbo that was already on there and protuned for: a VF43. I pray nothing else is wrong with the engine. :(

Andrew might have one upstairs. Give Dan a buzz.

That really stinks, but maybe this will cheer you up!

Thanks. Yeah, andrewtech closes at 6PM and I don't have Dan's Cell# anymore do to it being on my old crackberry that I left on my car and then drove off <hits self in head for doing that>.:chair:

Well I had paypal sent for a vf48 but the shop that was doing the seller's swap had sold it without telling him. If I had got it this week I would have sold you my vf43 to return the favor.:icon_wink:Sorry man I will keep a look out for you.
