nissan 180sx noisy turbo

Recommended Posts

ok i just got my 180sx when i accelerate and get to about 3000rpm it makes a quite loud noise sounds like a WRX ok now i have no mods on it wat so ever it is a turbo.

 

is this just a worn out turbo or what.

 

it's only done 75, 000km or is this just wat it sounds like because people have told me that it's just a very mechanical turbo.

ok sounds like your turbo needs an overhaul or replacement. mine died last year and had to replace.

If its a weird noise that no-one can tell you what it is.. it will be the 4 bolt flange gasket. They are pretty prone to going on the t series manifolds.

Yes, highly likely to be be an exhaust leak between the turbo and exhaust manifold. For piece of mind you might want to get new studs, nuts and locking tabs to stop it from happening again any time soon.

Chase up a T25G from a SR20 S13 and swap the turbo and fit new gaskets then. The tiny CA T25 is bloody useless - the CA loves to REV but with that tiny stock turbo the boost drops off too early.
