I've been looking for stock IHI turbos for a conversion and so far all 4 sets I found for sale had the same crack at the wastegate hole (passenger side turbo)


this had me thinking since a LOT of GTR's must be driving around with these cracks without noticing - do these cracks even constitute a problem? those are only hairline cracks after all.


also this issue seems to be known dating back to 2010ish and the cracks themselfes do not seem to get bigger over time!?

That is a common problem. It won’t hurt anything.
