Hey how would I check for Shaft Play in my Turbo if I remove it? I want to do this over the weekend.

Pull the DP off to the side, stick you fingers in there and wiggle away.

You're taking the turbo off just to check shaft play? You can just take the intercooler hose off and grab the center of it and see if there is any play side to side and front to back

Haha thats ok, I've taken the turbo off and I would never do it unless i'm replacing it with a new one. It's just too much work.

Yeah I popped outside of my office and took a look underneath the bonnet and I don't think I'll be taking the turbo off until I upgrade it lol.
