    Turbo advice

    Hi all. I was just wondering if any of you guys can confirm my turbo is on its way out. I have oil coming from my bailey dv and when on the motorway im getting blue smoke. Just want it confirming before i shell out all that £££. Next question should i put the vxr turbo on? What other parts do i need to put a vxr turbo on or is it just a straight swap? Where is best to get one from? Hope someone can help as i need my car asap.

    Alright mate blue smokenormally means the turbo has gone/on its way out. The vxr is a straight swap but you gotta change one of the pipes around.

    Does sound as if turbo is dying. How many miles has it done out of interest?

    Look here for parts you need Sticky: Turbocharging - how it works and tech terms/useful turbo part no's & other tech info. although some people only replace the studs, stud nuts and gasket.
