    VXR Turbo - fecked under 4 months

    Well great!!!!!!!!


    My turbo's knackered and its pretty much brand new......

    Now I get rattles while its spooling and the dump valve on it sounds like a rally car....... Plus the boost is down by about 3-5psi

    I primed it when fitting and everything......


    Not happy


    I hope LMF offer a refund??

    Fitted yourself ?? If so then you're on your own legally

    Fitted by a garage go back to them to prove the part is faulty.

    Bummer non the less

    Vauxhall will only go down warranty if it was fitted at a vat garage Or you go a claim under a VXR Vin number

    IF fitted by a VAT registered garage it would be covered under warranty - not if fitted by yourself. Courtenays put this disclaimer into their VXR Turbo sales, and I believe LMF do too.
