nope, won't kill your turbo

but it may well kill you* by leaking exhaust gasses into the engine bay / cabin

it'll kill you... over a very very very VERY long time (the tiny soot particles can build up in your lungs - over a period of decades)

Either get a machine shop to flatten the adaptor, or use a buttload of exhaust paste, and hope it sticks. All you're doing is losing power.

The Saab GT1752 is a very capable turbo Smile
