I have a Mazda cx 7. The turbo needs to be replaced. Can you just disconnect the turbo?

It is not really possible to "disconnect" a turbo. Its bolted to the exhaust manifold and all the exhaust gas is routed through it. you would have to try to find a header or exhaust manifold the was built for that car and not designed to run the turbo. Even if you were able to do this you would still have to have someone advance the timing back to where it should be for a natuarlly aspirated engine and re program the computer / change fuel enjector sizes to get the air fuel ratio back to ideal. (running without the turbo would cause your engine to run rich with fuel and cause engine fouling problems not to mention poor fuel economy.)

Hi Whitewolf108,

Is your vehicle a turbo diesel? or if it's petrol, again does it have a turbo?.... The turbo can often cause the effect that your explaining, regarding the orange glow from the exhaust manifold.... To give any more advice, I'll need more info from you....Example: do you live at a high altitude?.....The type of engine?....Any modifications bolted on?.... When did the idling become too high, was anything done to the carburation around that time?
