    there is only 2 bolts that secure the actuator to turbo casing , one bolt that connects the heatshield to actuator..one nut on bottom of actuator rod to undo...and one rubber pipe to pull off top of actuator..

    20 minutes tops! make sure, when you take the old one off, the top nut if secured in place so you can match it on the new one otherwise your boost will be out
    No longer GSi power
    Dirty Derv Decked Vec is the way forward for me!

    I know this is a really old thread but im really struggling to get my actuator off due to the bolt that come off the front of the turbo. Is this bolt the water or oil feed?
