    Replacement/bolt on turbo?

    I'm pretty sure my rear 9b turbo is on it's way out.

    I am looking at this list http://stealth316.com/0-frames.htm

    Will any of those ones listed just bolt right up without major modification?

    I'm thinking about hitting up a local DSM part out for a used 13g to hold me off for a while.

    Thanks!

    DR500s should be a direct replacement with out having to have too many supporting mods and have a lil extra power.

    A while ago I pulled off my intake pipes and the rear one had oil in it. My rear turbo had some shaft play. I didn't think it was too bad, but I think it got worse. It smokes on decel and if I get on it hard it will puff smoke between shifts. It might be in my head, but I swear it sounds/feels different.

    The pre-turbo intake pipes, or the hot side piping? The rear turbo sucks oil from the PCV system, which makes it hard to diagnose with no catch-can. If it's smoking on decel, and between shifts, it might be a turbo. Pull the downpipe if you get a chance, and free rev it to see which bank smoke comes out of.

    It was in the pre-turbo pipes, but I popped them off again a few times after I wiped them out and there is nothing. It was in my throttle body too. I pulled my PCV off and it was pretty gummy so I sprayed some ob blaster and wd40 in there to clean it. That helped the pcv a lot, but it still smokes on decel. ass

    I plan on getting something that will hold me off until I gather everything for a single setup.

    I just want to find some CHEAP 9bs or something off of a DSM on craigslist. (13g)
