    ZLET/VXR Turbo

    Hi All,

    Just wondering externally how you can tell what a VXR turbo is compared to the ZLET one?

    Cheers.

    The most obvious is that on the vxr turbo the bottom turbo intercooler pipe has like a threaded grip where the pipe connects, z20let one is smooth,PAULA

    Yeah the VXR has a ribbed connection on the bottom, it also has a wee pink tag on it but it's a mare to see.
