I took the hot side of the turbo off and had it media blasted to clean it up and paint it and this is what I found!
Are these cracks a concern or is this just they way they are?
No real concern if they leak but any chance of the cracks spreading and the housing braking?
Of course it is not "normal" but I have seen a lot of housings with these cracks, not a reason to discard the housing.
If pieces breaks off it will not be a problem because they will go straight into the exhaust
