My turbo fixed it self!! So happy/wonder why

So! I replaced the huffer on my familia with another used item to fix the squealing problem and it worked fine for about a month even if a *little* rough in response.

All of a sudden there it goes again, around 2~3psi it starts again.

I was all prepped up to start rebuilding my spare huffer when yesterday it just,, fixed it self. It is now the smoothest running unit I've heard/driven/soon to abuse.

Question!! I'm guessing there must have been a blockage in the oil feed line that spat itself through. Has anybody had a similar experience/other ideas why this happened??

If it was crap before, it will be crap again at some point. Definitely keep driving on it, but don't throw out that spare.

Any chance the mani has crack ? Could be hard to spot on stock jobbie.
Your oil line theory explains the squeals though.
