    Sucks to read all of this.  Hopefully the parts motor has what’s needed to fix it easily.

    If it turns out the turbo was oil starved, as Ben suggested, is there any way to fit a dedicated oil pressure gauge/idiot light to the replacement supply line?

    Well. Had a lot of fun in San Diego at Weston’s wedding!! We even got Cole to dress up  36CF9025-3EF4-44F1-BA73-8193C92B8A823B743FF0-F9BF-4E11-A299-465934A5B909didn’t stop him from sporting his KCW in Disneyland the prior day 🙂 1E7B9B62-F088-400A-B939-0E36A787885FSince the vanagon didn’t work out for our Baja trip, we decided to tag along with the Bradburn family to Australia. We will figure out the vanagon when we get home. Happy holidays everybody!!

    baywindows are the shit, fuck you.

    Can’t believe the shitty luck with this. I guess at least you’ll get to go on a family trip 👍🏻

    Yes! I’m sure we will be back down that way soon. We have to get revenge and take the vanagon on a Baja trip

    So I know a day back at KCW this will answer all questions.. but think it just broke the shaft inside the turbo? Between the hot and cold side? Just hope nothing went into the intake side of the motor.

    Do something

    We don’t know yet. I’m looking for a rental car to fit all 7 of us. If I can find one we will drive. If not we will fly

    Funny you should ask. Greg is the guy who sold us the engine and swap parts boxeer.com @crepeattack

    He was doing some work on the van today…..and seized the second turbo due to oil starvation.

    Spoke with Greg again this morning…. not looking up. Hard decisions… this ee20 motor  turned into a unicorn when we bought it… KB and I are bummed. Hopefully it’ll get worked out quickly
