03 Cat C-15 turbo boost dropped following a stock replacement install.
Engine: 03 Cat C-15 1.2 mil miles. 700 k on rebuild. 379 Pete.
History: Last week blew the Intake side of the turbo wheel in Half. 4 Fins from the wheel missing. Limped to a shop, installed a factory replacement. Did not flush Charge air cooler by service tech recommendation. Exhaust fins had no sign of damage, no oil in the charge air cooler.
Concerns: Engine life - What is the probability of parts reaching the intake? damage it may cause? things to watch / listen for? Boost pressure on my KR scan Gauge maxed out at 70 previously, now it peaks at 54. Is this a wastegate adjustment or a sign of trouble?
**BTW thanks to the KR Scan Gauge boost was Immediately Identified upon break down.
Is this a good question?
