Its a Borg Warner KKK turbo and yes - they are water cooled (they are supposed to be anyways)C2til said:Is it a water and oil cooled turbo?
If it is, YOU HAVE to connect the water line!
If it isn't, and it is oil cooled, then it is how it's supposed to work, shoud be okay.
The blue smoke can still be the turbo, if you blew one of the sealing.
Yikes - may I suggest contactign C2GAS? I htink he uses KKK turbos and he also has a water cooling system in his kit that he might be willing to sell you. You have my sympathy broJayloco said:Turbo blew last night, was planning on putting an oil pressure regulator and the water lines on monday but I guess it couldn't make it a week, anyone know where I can get a decently priced k04 020??

Just dropped the car off at the shop, turbo might not be blown but its making a weird whining noise, the wastegate slightly went off so I guess that's a good sign but the turbo is spitting oil into the pipes and as I mentioned was smoking a couple of days ago I hope something is just loose.
