Thanks for getting back to me. Glad to know that my "rattle" is probably normal for these engines. I'm not used to this type of noise from a Porsche engine, but I do remember my early 911's really making a racket when the hydraulic timing chain tensioners stated giving up the ghost. Thanks again for pointing me to the other more appropriate forums on water-cooled turbos. I must admit that it's been a long, long wait before I finally got my first turbo, but it was definitely well worth the wait. It's hard to believe it is actually sitting out in my garage as we speak!

Take care.
