    fitting the turbo is a real bitch, it would be easy if the manifold bolts didnt snap off inside the head :/

    also remove the actuator before you install or take out the turbo.

    dont need to ^^ sounds like the Boost control solenoid causing that surging. Cheaper than buying the turbo.

    Quick tip, when undoing the headstuds, i snapped mine around. Dont use a long bar and put loadsa pressure on the nuts. Normall sized ratchet and wack it with the palm of your hand. I never even used WD40! All mine came out no problems. Lots of progressive pressure will just cause them to possibly snap off. Wack Un Crack um.

    The hardest part about getting the turbo off is undoing the feed pipes! Ok I admit its abit tight, but it can be done easy enough. Did mine earlier this week :P

    I had something similar to this, the boost was sort of pulsing, mine turned out to be a cracked exhaust manifold. New VXR Turbo sorted this though.
