can the cracks be welded or is this turbo (at lest this side of it) shit?

That could be the problem. However, mine looked about half that bad and has no problems holding boost. I have pics of my wastegate cracks if you're interested.

DSM boys have been having similar issues with thier 14B and T25 for years. They just weld them up and keep going.

can improper timing cause this problem (no boost/excessive oil blow by)? The last owner said the dizzy was out of the car when he got it and given the state of the car when i got it he may not have put it back in right. should i remove it and check the cam timing aswell? I have checked the timing and i retarded it to 17* at 20 it was sluggish to start now it fires right up.

Not sure if its the same, but i have a .64 ar 5bolt T2 turbine housing from a gt2860rs for sale if you can use it.

sounds like an internal wasgate problem. My car was kinda doing the same thing. My friend pulled out the turbo and there was about a 1/8" between the housing and the gate. Why not get the turbo welded then grind it down smooth, and adjust the flap to close....? Just a suggestion
