New turbo shaft play?

2139 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  totalloser
I have never touched a new turbo before, but the S300 that Piers Diesel sent me (to go along with the new HT3B) seems to have a lot of shaft play in it. I think it has more play than the old stocker with almost 300,000 brutal miles on it. The S300 has more play than the new HT3B.

Is this normal? Should I take a short vid and post it? Maybe I am just being paranoid, but it just seems odd to see the fins be able to move around so much.

If it has more play than the old one I don't think that's a good thing. Is it a rebuild?

Nope -- for the money I paid Piers Diesel, it better be brand new, and BRAND SPANKIN NEW at that. I will call them today.
