    Blown turbo? Help.

    The past couple of weeks my turbo has been making an extremely loud wineing sound. And the other day i was driving and it lost all boost and started missing. It still builds boost but doesn't hold. I don't think there is a leak. I just baught a AMR cxr500 but I wana make sure it's the turbo that's making it misfire. There is no metal shavings in the oil or anything. Do you think it's just the turbo?

    Only way to tell is to pull the inlet at least and see if there is any play on the compressor wheel.

    Sorry. Should of explained more. But I know my turbo is done. I just wanted to make sure that was the reason it was missing.
