Talking my echo turbo build log

hi guys im starting a new build on my echo. i got a td03 turbo for free from school and that just gave me enough motivation to actually think about boosting the little car. as of now i have the turbo and a small intercooler off of a mazda millenia. currentley what i have done to the car is

echo rs leather steering wheel
echo rs aluminum rims
echo rs seats
removed spare tire
power steering delete
a/c delete
changed clutch (used a toyota celica clutch and pressure plate)$80 off ebay lol
muffler delete
turbo gauge 4in1
aem fi/c

and now a list of things still to do

install aem fi/c
custom turbo manifold
oil lines / coolant lines
intake piping
tires (planning on hankook optimo 4s)
rebuild turbo

i dont expect to get much hp from this tiny turbo (looks like a 0.3 ar)
maybe 150ish but i do plan on getting a bigger turbo in the distant future.

looks like the turbo seals are shot. Hope you're doing a rebuild on it first.

You can pressure test it off the car. I would test it to at least 80 psi. The easiest way to do so is with air. Plug one of the oil ports and charge the other. I built a rig for pressure testing things that has a quick disconnect air fitting, then a ball valve, then a 3 way T with a pressure gauge on the second leg and the connection to what I want to test on the third. attach it to the device, connect it to the air compressor and charge it to the desired pressure, then close the ball valve and watch the gauge. If it starts to drop, then you have a leak.

thanks for the tip. i hooked it up to a little 12v tire pump and i started hearing a hissing noise at around 5psi:/ so i guess i got to rebuild it. i might try an ebay rebuild kit.

Was the air coming out of one of the turbines? Also is there any shaft play?

That is one cooked turbo. Hopefully you can clean it all up and rebuild it.
