Default Time for some new turbos need input! - 07-03-2021, 03:04 PM

Well the 2009 335I my wife recently purchased (3 weeks ago) seems to have turbo issues. Left exhaust smokes a little after setting overnight, 30FF code comes up on the JB4 when checking codes, also sounds like a waste gate rattle upon cold start. I checked for vacuum leaks and couldn't find any. Goes into limp mode when pulling grade or accelerating any faster than my grandma.

Looking for some input on quality replacements on a budget!

Car will be a daily driver, and the wife doesn't care about having 600 rwhp.

Why not just buy stock replacement from FCP euro..then you have lifetime warranty.

Been checking out multiple websites and it seems the Mitsubishi stockers have quite a price swing from site to site depending on if one gets the install kit. I also sent an email out to RB in order to clarify their pricing.

The plan is to also do everything else oil, water, etc while the cradle is dropped.
