    Ive just ordered an vxr turbo for my sri 170!

    Yer its dead, started to whine, took it to the local dealer for there opinion on the noise. they said it was just a boast leak, nothing at all to worry bout it. 9 miles later very loud whining noise and the the thick white smoke behind me! got it towed back home by rac... (yet another wrong thing from a dealer) so ive got an vxr turbo on the way.
    ive been and got the manifold to head nuts from dealer and they advised me not to put an vxr turbo on it.

    Is there anything i need to know, do anything special when fitting the new turbo. is it worth cleaning the intercooler because the oil seals went?
