    same, had engine management light come on, read the code and it was boost pressure.

    i've just turned 50000 miles.... what a coincidence...

    anyone else? does anyone have any more info on this?

    i had mine changed on my the estate i had.

    had done about 40ish thousand when it went, apparantly it is low on boost and was putting the car into limp mode at high revs.

    My currant SRi one is giving the same clues apart from the light, whining when setting off as this was cured when the estate had a new one fitted.

    how much was your new turbo steve as i didnt pay for my last one as it was a warranty job but was told they are 700 quid from vx???

    yeah, up high ends of the rev scale and then buff in limp mode...

    the whining noise was a big give away for me.

    it cost me (with discount) 500+ quid for the turbo.

    bugger it at that price then!

    Mine is whining but not going into limp mode yet so i think il leave it for now.

    What are they like to fit steve, how long did it take you to fit?

    We have a corsa van at work with the same engine in and thats doing a simpular thing so looks like i might get some practice in on that!

    its ok likes,

    about 5-6 hours it took me, but thats taking into account i managed to snap 2 bolts on the exhaust return pipe on the manifold.

    just strip the nearby area e.g. air con pump, any pipes, air pipe etc.

    put up on a ramp then take out the exaust manifold.

    once you have it out, its fairly easy to get the turbo changed and on.
    the hardest part is making sure the turbo is ok and nothing gets into it while your refitting it.

    if you have a couple of people on it your talking about 3-4 hours job done.
