I have abit of a mere with the vxr turbo fitted to my Z20Let over the past few days...
My standard Turbo went when i bought the car last April, so i went and ordered a VXR Turbo and bits and bobs... fitted it 2 weeks later, and it lasted up untill last week... 1 year.
Started off by hearing a sort of sound that sounded like a boost leak, then a wurring sound on start up... then a wurring and screeching sound whilst spooling and absolutly no boost... turbo dead.
Now, do LMF sell Recon'd units or are they brand new? i was under the presumption that they were brand new?
If there new, then whats the most probable reason for it going within a year?
i used to let it warm up and down, wasnt hammering it everywhere at all...
so, anyway, getting a new one fitted early next week... and i want to know the best way to make it last a fair few years before changing it again? how to give it a long happy boosting life???
cheers for any help or input, chris (turbo novice)
p.s. VXR Turbo and actuator on a Z20LET Coupe, leaving the actuator at the position it came with... should it be put to the same position as standard z20let's?
