You might get away with a filter on a N/A car matey, but on a turbo'd car
Something as small as a single grit of sand can knacker the blades if it hit them when the turbo was at full chat
Is that so?
Never knew that, seems like turbos are ultra sensitive, have they dropped in price yet?
I wouldnt say they where ultra sensitive, they can handle some abuse, especially if you consider some of the rotational forced they go through and sudden speed increase and decreases, aswell as the pressures they take, but if you where spinning around at 80,000 rpm and someone threw a tiny stone at you, youd shatter and break into pieces and get sucked into the engine aswell!
