    Remove Rust from Turbo

    I just bought a really clean 06 F12X with only 30 hrs. on it. Test drive was fine and got the ski up to about 62mph and about 6050rpm.

    The only downside is that I don't think the original owner sprayed the turbo down with CRC for it's life.

    Does anyone have any tricks of the trade to remove all of this rust, mainly on the manifold side?

    The previous owner had to have sprayed it or else it would be much worse than that. My '02 came with almost that much rust from the factory. The can on the actuator and WG shaft are your biggest concerns. The rest is mostly cosmetic.
