Well, two days after my MOT pass i've blown my turbo oil seals.
Well pretty sure this is the problem. I was overtaking slow cars and once halfway through 4th gear the power just stopped. The car then sounded like a scooby till i could pull off into a side road a few hundred yards later.
Reset ecu by disconnecting battery just in case, then restarted the engine. Lots of coughing and more misfiring then lots of white smoke.
I've had a looky and my intake is full of oil, on the top of the turbo inlet it was everywhere.
So VXR turbo is here. And i am hoping this is the only problem!
Just thought i'd share my troubles. And i was just about to fork out for bodywork instead.
