    turbo problems

    I have a msx 150 it has only 28hrs on it and has been through 3 turbos right know it is acting up again and will not go over 40mph. the dealer says it will be another turbo. I was wondering if it might be something else because i dont see this many turbos going out so soon also it is ran mostly in salt walter thanks again

    Where are you located?

    You might want to start by calling Randy at Watcon.

    Has the shop explained exactly what is wrong with the turbo?

    I can answer this one, If you do not get all of the foregin debris from the intake and exhaust tracks. You are asking for a nightmare. It would be similar to flying a jet plane, Inducing a bird.. damn birds.. Fixing the engine and not getting the leftovers out of the intake.. Make sense?
