    Thumbs Down ahh thats just great

    as if the smoking engine problem aint good enough, now the clutch is defo slipping noticed it in 3rd this morning a 500rpm increase momentaraly at 3,000rpm (close on to peak torque) so now it looks like i have a new turbo to have fitted, a clutch and fly wheel, close ratio gear selecter & ns driveshaft gaitor (its been demolished by the ride height) looks like i'm gona have to start sliging the overtime in... again was looking forward to running the bus at pv... but i guess i wont be able to now life and dissapointments hand in hand.

    Did you ever find out if it was the turbo causing the smoking in the end, or is that yet to be tested still?

    i'm gona sling on another turbo and get the other one looked at and kept as a spare. if it still smokes then i'll sell it as it quite obviousley wont be faulty. i'm gona need an old dog of a car as the bus will probly be coming off road for a major engine rebuild. not bad for a 15,000 mile engine huh
