    Welcome mate. There are a few member from carlisle. I drive a Mk4 astra turbo (z20let) most things that go wrong on them are AFM (air flow Meters), and Rocker cover gaskets, other then that a sound strong engine.

    Missed this one!

    I'm from Carlisle but I'm not clued up on Turbo's myself. All I do know is that they tend to need replaced every 50-60,000 miles or thereabouts, nothing else I'm aware of really!

    And welcome, Carlisle has the highest (not hard!) percentage of active Cumbrian members I believe!
