ummm, think you may have misinterpreted someones explanation or may have gotten confused, im not sure its even possible for the fin chunks to get Sucked back into the engine, id say its more likely something went thru the intake side, did all the damage and screwed the turbo on its way out

Not sure on the pistons. Would need to check the invoice. Not forged though. Wasn't that rich as I had just spent it all on buying the car. The turbo is a scarles gt3540. Would like to change it to a Garrett 3540 or a t04z though. The turbo is at its limit I think as it was a cheapy in comparison to the Garrett. Guys at shred thought I might get up 2 100 kw more by going with a better turbo and a couple other small changes.

Man, an R33 GTR with an RB30 and a big single turbo - I am damn jealous right now, very cool.  Have you upgaded the cams, or are you going to?

If you are in the position to, live out my dream and get yourself on of the awesome new turbos available these days - there are some fricken wicked T3 flanged ball bearing turbos from Precision and Forced Performance that make the likes of the original Garrett GT3582R and T04Zs a bit outdated.

Indeed,  that car is one of the vehicles which convinced me on the HTA turbos - before being on the RB30 turbo was on another mates EVO which it also performed really well on, though the EVO was only a 2litre and running on pump gas so wasn't really doing it justice.  A 3litre and/or lots of boost with good fuel and those things can make ridiculous power with good delivery.

There is a bit of info on the net about this. im not the first. Only rear 3 cylinders were damaged after rear turbo failed. on decel there is enough vacuum to suck stuff back in. And the pieces in the piston that were dug out were definatly ceramic.

Can associate with that, well will keep an eye on the thread - should be plenty of fun in the interim anyway :)

A couple of new pictures. Just installed some suspension in the weekend. Just R34 Gtr Dampers with Tanabe lowering springs but made a huge difference compared to what it use to look like. The old rears were so worn so this is a huge improvement. No more banging over pot holes or shuddering in tight left corners. Also tried installing the air con. Turns out that there are a few differences between the standard 33 and the gtr radiator and condenser setup. So got the pump mounted anyway and back to looking for the gtr rad and condenser + lines setup. Will get some better pics next time its out as it was a bit wet this weekend for good pictures.
