Ah, ok... So closer to a T28 then.
Got the turbo off, was AS much of a pain as I thought it was going to be, thankfully I had it apart before it was originally installed (it didn't come apart so easy on the bench, 3-4 years ago
And yea, it was leaking a little.
At least I'm doing this now, before I get a nice oil fire.
Blurry pic of a sad, turboless engine bay.
Oh, and the turbo isn't even in that bad of shape, considering the abuse I've been putting it through... Just basically the turbine seal that needs to be replaced.

Man, I'm too used to a turbo engine... You put your foot down and... Bleh.
Sometimes I forget just how restrictive the T25 turbine is, man this thing revs up way quicker.
Maybe I should fit up the old NA manifold, I guess it really depends on how long the turbo is down.

Well, I got the turbo disassembled, it's all ready for the rebuild kit.
Bearings were like new still, other than the coked oil on the turbine side bearing, thrust wasn't too bad either, but was worn for sure (no surprise there)
