ZZP V3 turbo mounted and upon cleaning my old turbo out noticed a crack inside near the compressor wheel, found it funny because I never had any low boost issues, codes etc at least for my understanding lol, I am an electrician by trade so I am not too technical when it comes to this stuff but does make sense why I have excessive black “toot” in my exhaust / downpipe. Wipes off easy but for a car with 40,000 km it shouldn’t of been that bad? My theory is that extra air was getting sucked out when turbo temps are up and the housing is expanded , causing the air to create extra unburnt gas into exhaust. At this point I really don’t care but inspect your turbos !!! Install was super easy HIGHLY RECOMMEND PB BLASTER , you don’t need a lot but makes bolts super easy to take off! ZZP shipped unit out from Detroit to Toronto in 2 days with everything included which is a bonus nowadays !

P.S. I purchased all new OEM GM oil hoses and coolant hoses ( supply and return ) just for the heck of it, all my original Parts came off super easy thank god and not one broke as I saw multiple videos on YouTube with broken parts. the ZZP downpipe made install a lot easier !
