s13 silvia ca18det garrett t25 turbo- horrible exhaust leak?

Recommended Posts

Sorry for all the basic questions, but this one I need some help with--


When I bought the car it came with a stock exhaust, mated to a aftermarket dump pipe and turbo manifold, stock t25 turbo.


The owner has a receipt from a performance shop and they had written "noisy turbo" as one of their comments.


When the engine is running it is loud and right away creates a bad carbon/petrol (gas) smell. I asked the owner what is up with that and he didn't think anything bad of it.


Do these engines/turbos usually leak from a common spot

Gasket must be gone, or a hole/split in your dump pipe possibly...
