Spoke to turbo technics and they said they dont really repair units just replace parts on new ones, ive heard different tho! The spoke to TD and they said they would be able to repair it but they are double the price of TT can anyone shed any light and what results theyve had from a busted turbo thats been reconditioned Cheers ben'

    much better spending out on a hybrid or garret than messing around with a really shagged turbo. if your upgrading std unit is best to start with a decent turbo

    Do vauxhall not have a parts warranty for turbos at all? Surely there has to be some fall back on a turbo dying after a week or so
