1750 TBI Turbo issues

I have posted this in the 159 / Brera / Spider and Giulietta Forums already

TBI Turbo oil issues
In view of the amount of Turbo's that we are getting asked for, for the 1750TBI engine, we are recommending the following items are checked and changed if needed.

1). Oil turbo feed pipe. A lot of the earlier models had a feed pipe with no heat shield. The pipe runs behind the exhaust manifold and gets VERY hot. The oil can solidify in the pipe starving the turbo of oil. The modified pipe has a heat shield fitted around it.

2). Oil turbo feed pipe filter. The filter fits through the banjo fitting in the feed pipe and into the head. The gauze filter can block, again starving the turbo of oil. We are recommending these are changed as a serviceable item.

3). The correct oil. Selenia brought out last year Sport Power just for the 1750TBI. The additives in this oil are there to keep the oil stable at high temperatures.

4). Regular oil changes. It is not uncommon for these engines to leak fuel into the oil.

Photo's below show an original pipe and a modified one.

We carry all these parts in stock for next day delivery.
