    help with fixing vxr turbo

    well basically a few weeks ago i was fitting my new vxr turbo, when one of the bolts on the oil return snapped.

    so i stupidly decided to try and drill it out my self and made a right hash of it.

    and it now looks like this:




    so basically, how am i going to get this fixed/re-drilled and tapped.

    im also going to get it upgraded with double oil seales and 360D bearing, so i have emailed several companies like turbo technics and asked them about doing that and also fixing the damage i caused, but neither have replyed.

    so im assuming they don't wan't to touch my damage.

    so does anyone know where i could get this fixed?

    thanks for any help on this,
    matt

    thanks, i will try them aswell.

    i have also just had a good idea on fixing the snapped bolt, i think if i can get the broken bolt out, i should be able to use a m8 helicoil insert.
    as ive just looked on ebay and there are some with the external diamater of m12, which i think will work well, if i take my time, and not rush it like it did to end up in this mess.

    simple drill out the next size and retap will sort that if you can do it accurately
    Be Happy
