I have searched the threads and have not found my particular issue, so would appreciate some advice.

I read in other posts...

Not wanting to clog up Jamie's thread with my stuff, I've decided to start my own thread.
As you know, my ATP GT2X turbo has blown. Oil smoke belching out the exhaust, burning oil and a screeching sound when it comes on boost!
So ... the turbo has to come off. I have decided to do it...
