REVIVED MY DTUB
#1
Well last night I went through a flood dip thinking it wasnt deep cos a slamed vectra went through before me but just my look I suck water up my intake n kill the engine so today ive taken injectors and glow plugs, turned it over and about a liter of water squirted out so put everything back together leavin inter cooler off as that was full of water and want to start it to blow all water out of the turbo pipes and it fied up squirt shit loads of water out of the thick pipe that goes onto intercooler,

My question is will it have done and damage to anything else? Guna do a oil change aswell tmw but im worried would it have done anything to my turbo? Its not smoking any more than normal so hopfully not

I've done this recently. I'm fearing the worse. Haven't done a compression test yet.
