    Cooling Mod

    Done a search on the subject and found various threads but very little real info on whats involved. Considering it was Vauxhalls own fix for short turbo life there seems to be very little known about it.
    While I have my turbo off it would be a good time to do this if possible. Has anyone done it themselves? there doesnt seem to be a 'how to' on it.

    Hi M8,
    There was aHow To sent in but for some unknown reason (to the author and everyone else) it has not been put on...

    Unless i need to change/take off the turbo i'm not going to do it.....

    ...but i am designing my own cooling set up which i hope to have sorted out soon.

    I did the same thing, made my own cooling mod with some AN-6 hose, a 32mm temp sensor mount and some Earls fittings...

    A very controversial subject, take it as you will. Personally think its a load of bollocks but have a read through the site and decide for yourself.

    Nevo'o I found your autobiography which has some good pics and info on whats involved. Not sure the Vauxhall kit is worth £130 so I will look at making the mod myself.

    I have looked at it again and it will be fairly easy to replicate this mod later when I have the parts I need. So I will bolt the turbo up and complete later.
    Thanks Enigma for the 'how to' very helpfull.
