    My mechanic says that there was an animal's nest right on top of my exhaust manifold. Pine needles, maple seeds, grass...... He didn't find anything wrong with the oil supply line today and thinks that the fire was caused by the nest. Hmmm. The smoke *was* white and it wasn't smelly and black.

    Mechanic said that my turbo hose (charge size) is singed and weak in spots. Spent $650 for that stupid OEM thing just less than 2 years ago and had to have it shipped up from the southern States. Must be dipped in un-obtanium. Only good news is that I have an aftermarket Forge Motorsports one which I purchased at the same time as the OEM one.

    Rodents be fast. In our previous house a vole was getting into the garage. It would build a nest in the same wheel of my truck every night. Every morning I backed out, the nest fell out, and I had to throw it out again. (Took a while to figure out how the stupid thing got in.)

    To answer your question (and others') you can't even see the turbo, exhaust manifold or any of that stuff as it's all squished between the firewall and the back of the engine. And it's been over a month since the turbo was replaced. Weird. Crazy thing.

    Had car on a very hot Calabogie track last night. Did one stint of almost 30 minutes of hot laps. No fire. That is all.
