    vxr turbo help....

    not sure if this is the right section or not, does anyone know of anywhere in the midlands area that will supply/fit a vxr turbo for me at a decent price?

    local dealers refuse to do it as its not the "standard part" and dont really want to go to a back street garage who doesnt have a clue.

    vauxhall will fit, but wont supply n fit, so buy from courtenays n get vaux to fit, or find a trusted garage

    Pretty sure if your dealership bothered to look into it further they would find the LET turbo is NLS and the later turbo's are multiple supersession - it may be the LEL/LER turbo's though but LEH turbo is straight fit.



    But vaux will charge 75 an hour minimum. One of the tuners or local specialist is best bet.

    it just comes down to price, the zlet(now same as lel,ler) is round £900 retail where as leh is a bucket load cheaper. its the only reason why they wont warrent it on the lel,ler,let ,but will sell u one, but refuse to fit, but u can buy it down road at nother dealer, and take it back, and the original dealer will fit, its bloody stupid

    when i asked what they themselves would supply an fit they couldnt tell me, apparently its not on there database!! have spoken to courtenay already who say they wouldnt be able to fit until mid july which to be honest is too long a wait. have a mate who could do it for me but worried about not having a warranty if anything was to happen, i have read threads on here which have turbos done after 3-5k!

    vauxhall wont warrent the vxr turbo on anything else othe than the vxr, although a few places will warrent the unit if fitted by them, ie courtenay.
