    Vauxhall replacing the LET turbo for the VXR item?

    Hello,

    Just looking to find out if anyone knows someone at Vauxhall who can confirm or deny something I was told from my Local Vauxhall parts department.

    In a bid to find out why VXR (LEH) turbos are cheaper than the Std ones on the LET engine I decided to poked around on the phone to Vauxhall, when that went nowhere, I decide to take a trip into my local vauxhall dealer who sympothised with my lack of detail form Vauxhall direct and informed me he had just recently received a Memo from Vauxhall which stated that all future LET turbo replacements under warranty will be replaced with those for the LEH - no reason was given.

    Is this true??

    If anyone has any further kowledge to back this up it'll be good to hear!

    Thats interesting, previously Vx would not honour the warranty on the VXR/LEH turbo unit if fitted to the Z20LET.

    If you do speak to them, ask how much for a supply and fit.

    Probably going to cost more but at least the work/turbo will be warranted, whereas buying from LMF etc and fitting yourself virtually means no warranty.
