The reason am asking is because I got another used turbo fitted on my golf the other day after my last one broke. The guy that fitted it is one of my dads mates who works from home as a mechanic and I noticed when he gave us the old turbo back in the box he left some of this stuff in there:On what gasket? If it needs an o-ring or paper gasket, replace. If it needs sealant, use that. Don't use it to cowboy stuff.
I know the oil feed line has a banjo bolt with two copper washer when you put it back together. I was thinking the manifold am not complaining or anything I was just curious.Might have used it on the oil feed pipe joints to the turbo. Thats a complete guess. Intake manifold? Can't see it lasting on the exhaust side.
