    Turbo fitting guide

    Hey
    Im sure it was on this site that I found a guide on how to fit a VXR turbo to a GSi. Im sure it also had the removal of the old one and the cooling mod in it too. Not 100% on the last bit though.
    For the life of me I cannot find it anywhere again. Should have printed when I had the chance
    Anyone got a link to it or point me in the right direction please.

    All I can see in their how to section is bits for Induction mod, pre-cat pipe, turbo timer, total closure, bailey dv, spark plugs, road angel, bush mount, ECU removal, temp gauge, FM intercooler, timing belt, HSK-SSQV.

    Hmm I will email them to point me in the right direction.

    I think I probably will. Dont want to be forking out for another unit in the not too distant future.
    Hopefully I should manage it all myself. Not mechanically minded at all but when I read a guide for doing it, I did half understand it, Plus I will have a retired mechanic close by to advise me on any probs I may come across.
