Since buying the new car a couple of months back I have had persistent smoke coming from the exhaust and a rather large loss of oil as in I was filling the oil to full and within 2 weeks and some times even 1 week it has all gone yet there wasn’t a single drip under the car so it was burning oil quite badly.
After some investigation by a mechy, we found there was oil in all the pipes leading up to the dump valve and quite a lot at that and can only of come from once place the turbo L
So my question is, is it really worth that bit extra for a VXR turbo and if I did get one is it much more hassle to fit and would I need to have the car remapped afterwards or is it just a good thing to do ??
Also would you recommend reconditioned turbos or are they not worth they weight??
And as things stand would the car simply just drink oil and last some time or is it a case of it needs to be replaced asap.
Cheers for any advice :P
