RE: [DMCForum] Turbo.



Collapsing an air filter by the turbo(s) over spooling and sucking it in.  I
have seen it happen in other applications.

Looks like you have it sorted.  Drive happy. :)

Well that's exactly what the wastegate's for in the first place, so 
holding it open manually should prevent the turbine doing much at all. 
Collapsing the air filter?!

It'd be a frustratingly short journey on a trailer :-)
