Turbocharger Warranties

Warranties

Thank you for purchasing a remanufactured turbocharger from Six Star Speed!

 

We want you to be satisfied with your purchase and for your new turbo to last a good long time providing years of enjoyment.  Please see the following for a few simple things to do to ensure long life and performance.

 

  • When installing the turbocharger ensure that all mounting bolts are tightened to the proper torque settings as specified in the Factory Service Manual

 

  • Check that oil feed lines are tight and leak free

 

  • Use only the oil feed banjo bolt fitting supplied by Six Star Speed

 

  • Check that all boost control lines are in the proper position and free of damage

 

  • Check that all coolant hosed are securely clamped and leak free

 

  • Prime the oil system by cranking the engine with ignition fuse removed before the first engine start.  Check for leaks

 

  • Do not use full throttle until the engine coolant and oil are at normal operating temperature

 

  • The use of only high shear strength full synthetic oil is necessary to maintain a valid warranty.  Avoid using mineral oils, except for new engine break-in, or oils indicating “Energy Conserving” (starburst symbol)  A list of recommended oils is on the following page.

 

  • Note to all owners of AVCS equipped turbocharged vehicles:  You MUST check clean and/or remove the three oil filter screens in the AVCS hard lines before installing a new turbo.  Clogged filters will prevent proper oil flow and damage the turbocharger assembly

 

  • CHRA products must be installed by a professional turbo shop to maintain valid warranty

Oil recommendations for Turbo Subaru motors

 

Normal driving – no heavy throttle, high temperature conditions, stock motor, stock power levels use an energy conserving 5W-30 synthetic oil for best fuel economy.  Six Star Speed recommends highly rated (ACEA A3) 5W-30 and 0W-30 oils for these conditions

 

Performance driving – tuned motor, high temperature, stock or built motor, on road use a synthetic 5W-40 gasoline engine oil.  Most 0W-40 synthetic oils also are compatible with use under these conditions.

 

High performance – highly tuned stock motor, built motor high power >400WHP, track/off road, use a synthetic 10W-50 or 5W-50 oil.

 

Most enthusiasts would need to jump right to the “Performance” level use as the bar for normal driving is pretty low.  At Six Star Speed we suggest this is where enthusiasts should start. 

 

Our suggestion is that you avoid 5W-30 Energy conserving oils if you drive in one or more of the following conditions:

 

Ž    Are tuned to produce more than the stock power output

Ž    Engage full throttle use for any period of time

Ž    Drive in conditions hotter than 90 degrees F

Ž    Drive at constant high speed conditions over 65 mph
