ok had some problems last night on motorway, basically the turbo was only kicking in half way and making loud hissing sound, then power dropped off and started to lose speed, car broke down eventually, then recovery towed me home.
basically, took to vauxhall dealer locally today and they checked diagnosed and told me as i have fitted the vxr turbo unit recently, the boost pipe from intercooler to turbo is wrong type and cant handle power the new vxr turbo kicks out.
so basically its cost me £175 to supply part about 75 quid they said and rest is diagnostic fee and fitting.
does this sound right ?
or is it cheap part and easy to replace ?
i thought you were fine to use the existing pipe which was on a normal turbo unit ?
they told me its different type of fit and handles power from car better and as it should be.
