Tearing down a 2007 STi for rebuild now. This engine has been previously rebuilt (by a past owner, not a shop). Every time we look at something, we discover another problem. The "plastic" TGV's were torqued to the heads soooo tight, we needed a gun to remove them. You can see they are warped from the pressure and temp. These were leaking. The turbo inlet tube was not properly fit and someone attempted to make it fit by wrapping another piece of silicone around the inlet tube (at the turbo) and then wrapping that with silicone tape. Major FAIL. The turbo was not bolted to the up pipe completely as there was no nut on the most forward stud. There was a large exhaust leak here too. The turbo oil return line is kinked badly enough to hinder flow, the turbo oil supply pipe is kinked/bent bad enough to hinder flow. So, this turbo may exhibit issues from low oil as well. What will we find next???.
