Oil return threads BROKE off housing


Jan 22, 2013
St. Louis
one thing after another...

So I get my turbo back from Forced Performance. They rebuilt my FP3052. Everything looks great. no issues that I can see.

Threading in the oil return line with the turbo on my dining room table. One side goes in not fully torqued. (I like to tighten the bolts in a pattern to avoid this type of issue.)

Threading the other side in... Snug snug snug CRACK. Bolt spins freely... I'm thinking sh*t how could I have possibly stripped this bolt. Being a technician myself I like to think I can avoid these types of newb mistakes...

So I beging to loosen the bolt, to my suprise it threads right out... when The bolt fully comes out guess what other piece fell in my lap... The rest of the CHRA housing...

There has to be a way to fix this?! I know I did not just dump $700 down the drain!!

any advice??

Send it back? Only other thing I could think of would be to pull it apart, weld it and thread it...But if they will take it back then maybe you can avoid that trash...
