During M-Class KSEE (July 2014), we found a turbo charger on a Mirage that showed signs of being too hot. On the same day, another Mirage made an emergency landing at KSEE with a complete turbo charger failure, including a nearly-complete loss of oil and subsequent loss of oil pressure. The turbo charger failure and subsequent engine-ingestion of shrapnel will necessitate a new engine for that airplane. The day seemed to highlight the importance of ensuring the health and performance of the turbo chargers on a PA-46. Here’s a nice video with the help of Nathan from High Performance Aviation @ KSEE.
