    well vxr fitted,zlet seems fine

    been few days since had the vxr fitted, 2nite really let her go, and whooooaaaa, really hangs on it there, through the range, what a difference smile is def back on me face, the zlet that came off looks and feels fine, no movement in shaft, but wastegate is siezed, and deffo losing oil, so guess seals are shot. but wasnt smokey either,werid,lol

    well smic save time now, probs work out cheaper to buy ipf as want ph 1 asap

    all codes cleared now time for work on 888 for pv

    Sorry to hijack thread with a newbie question but should i beable to move the actuator arm back and forth relatively easy or not? it`s just that mine seems quite corroded and stuck fast?
    thanks.

    with the actuator off the wastegate arm should be very loose and the actuator should be very hard to pull out hope this helps
    never drink and drive .you might spill your drink
    **** n/a turbo is the way
