Default Need

Problem narrowed down to TURBO SEALS.

Anyone know a reputable shop that rebuild my garret turbo. The seals are leaking... its going into my intake and out my exhaust.

I have ALEX infomation in Chantilly. I will try to reach out there but believe he doesn't do rebuilds.

You have a NSX with a turbo kit and don't have the means to find a reputable shop to work on it?

Check with Livin Dreams Auto Salon. Alex is a genius when it comes to Hondas, he can probably take care of you.

my turbo is level with the pan so I have a scavage pump for the oil return from turbo.
i have a good safe tune on my standalone AEM boosting 8lbs.

i did a leakdown test, its good.

the problem I am having is that I'm leaking oil but do not fully understand why its leaking where it is. there might be two or more spots leaking from somewhere in the engine bay and turbo. i'm also having excessive blue smoke which might be a bad turbo. I am also losing some coolant on my air to water setup.

Can anybody come take a look..... perhaps someone that knows how to built and put together a turbo system.

This....You will not find much help on this site its full of Idiots and E-Thugs, your better off going on an NSX site. This site is to make fun of others car/prices/problems. In all reality not many people will be able to help you without actually seeing the car/issues.

well if it's leaking and it wasn't before its pretty obvious the leaks will be at the fittings, either from the head for feed, at the turbo, or at the pan. same with a2w setup. a2w setup is prolly a simple fix just needing some teflon tape on the fittings.
