    3 rd turbo gone

    my zaf has been playing up for a while now we changed coil pack and afm still the same. went to the garage last night and they stripped the front of the car off and pullled the pipes off the turbo and its dripping in oil. So i think its turbo number 3 in less than a year. Roll on new turbo fitted and a nice audi or vw for me i have gone of vauxhalls

    3 turbos in a year, Id suggest that they are either being incorrectly fitted or there is another problem somewhere causing them to go.

    have you thought about sending this turbo to a place like turbo dynamics to have it inspected or repaired/upgraded?

    they can give a inspection report and tell you if it could be a prob with the car instead of the turbo its self

    Turbo technics did mine for £322 with twin oil seals, a good service and a 360 degree bearing, will now hold 22psi all day long and have a warranty for 2 years

    These units are crap that's the trouble and the Zaf being so heavy puts extra stress on them, are you running a remap??

    Also as above are you sure you have no problems with the oil piping??
