    Fitted new turbo! HORAY!! (sort of)

    well,

    fitted the new VXR turbo at the weekend, took it for a short 5 min run and no blue smoke!!! horray, and seemd fine,(havn't booted it yet, was a little scared of doing so, lol)
    but i have the spanner light on on the dash,
    anyone had the same problem?
    wondered if it just needed reseting or something.
    any advice please.....

    thanks.

    did think about the actuator as its slightly different to the z20let unit.
    whats the BCS?

    depends really,
    have you done any other mods, runnin higher boost?
    my car's runnin standard so dnt think there is any need.
    just bolt on and away you go, (well hopefully)
    only upgraded to vxr unit cos mine was on its way out. (vxr unit is cheaper)
