    spoke to vaux dealership about z20let turbo being superseded...

    ..and was told that they use the turbo from the 200bhp sri not the vxr?

    am a little confused?

    is it just the tuners that go for the vxr turbo?

    is the zlet turbo really that bad that a turbo from a less powerful engine superseeds it!!!!!!! (sri 170)

    although after having mine for nearly 3 weeks and 1500 miles it seems to have come alive this week.

    Is the Turbo from the LEL / LER the same as the old LET turbo or is it different in some way?

    Edit: Ah, just re-read Welsh Andy's post.

    Cheers

    i was told that by vauxhall too, but as said there is a difference, someone buy a standard ler/lel/let turbo and map it to phase 3 and c what happens,lol

    i would suggest ppl contact courtenays and other turbo places, they will confirm there are differences, also there r 2 part numbers and 2 prices, the lel,ler,let turbo is a lot more dosh that the leh one for some reason
