    Thread: Found at gas station near bay bridge: Big Turbo, brand new in box!

    1. 09-27-2010 11:17 AM #1
      With all the threads about stealing, YOU are very lucky I am an honest person.

      Somewhere near the Bay Bridge, we stopped at a gas station just off RT 50 Westbound. As I got out of the car, I saw a plain box on the ground with turbo written on it in magic marker. Jokingly I told my friends I found a turbo, but as I kicked the solid/heavy box... I realized, I really did find a turbo.

      I have no idea how someone loses a brand new big turbo, but if it is yours, you can have it back. You will need to identify the turbo and provide proof you own it/bought it via a receipt or serial number.

      If you lost it, pm me the turbo model, your phone number, and i will contact you.



      EDIT: Which vendor was selling any Precision Turbo kits?

      It is very possible this turbo wasn't even from h2o as it is a universally used big turbo. Still a little stumped that someone would leave a heavy turbo like that at a gas station!

      After my brother and I robbed a bank, we left a baby that we were holding for ransom on the roof of our 1970's station wagon. Luckily when we turned around, the baby was safe and sound...Until Randall Tex Cobb took him. Keep that turbo away from Randall Tex Cobb.

      maybe the turbo belongs to the gas station and you just unknowingly stole it... ? or not.

      if it's an h2o-er, then yeah, nominate yourself for the nobel pizza prize.

      I doubt it. It was sitting next to a full garbage can by the pump. Now that I think about it... I should have checked the trash can as well! Maybe the rest of the turbo kit was in there!

      BTW on a side note: Thanks to all who visited the TM Tuning booth and were kind, courteous and professional. Only had one problem customer (the Cheech looking guy) who was all bent out of shape over a dip stick jcap. But we resolved it and he walked away happy (i think).

      WOW! You found my turbo!
      Funny story. I stopped for gas and decided to run over a cardboard box. I heard a "thunk" and my turbo wouldn't spool the rest of the trip home. I got out and saw it fell off. It must have landed in the box. What luck.

      Seriously though, props for looking for the rightful owner.

      Chad, you didn't find a lost turbo:

      Clearly that turbo was in shipping transit from ECS.
