Got a smokey GSi at the minute, weve manage to plug it down to the turbo as per usual smoking on idle. The cars completely standard with 46k on the clock. Its still going strong, but be stuck at some lights for a few mins, then pull off and poof blue smoke and the smell of burnt oil!
Now looking into buying a new turbo at some point, im not thinking its vital at the minute because the cars holding out well, i dont give it hammer either!
On CS they sell the VXR turbo + Actuator = £495,
Then there is some options, what is there "Uprated" actuator, what benifits would i see from this item since it will cost a extra £110 to have! Is it worth this cost at all?
Another option i dont understand too is the "Manifold with Drain gasket"? Whats this, and also would it be wise getting one since it is £13, whats the job of this item?
Any help would be great,
