This happened at roughly 2-3 psi while driving through an intersection in traffic. Not sure what caused it. Luckily all the pieces were found in the pre turbo pipes. Nothing after. New DR-650s installed + oil lines and running strong - good compression. Will post more on the build later. Have any of you seen this before?
Looks like some thing got sucked into the intake and went to the rear turbo. Or a flaw in the machining of the compressor wheel.

I thought it looked like a 9b lol... but you said DR650 installed, so I got confused.
How many miles on them? And was this out of nowhere, or had you done some work on the car prior?
They were 10k miles over due for a rebuild so I wouldn't say it was out of no where. Surprised it happened at such low boost though. Currently it's my daily driver so I baby it way too much. I only open it up on free way ramps after the clutch is fully engaged and even then my max EBC setting is 12psi. I only use the freeway a few times a month.
