    C20LET Problems

    I have a C20LET fitted to my MK4. Its pouring out smoke all the time im wondering does this mean the turbo is fu*ked or could it be anything. It does it whilst im changing gear after being on boost!! But does seem quite smokey whilst stationery also.

    If it is the turbo that needs replacing i may aswell uprate it, im wondering are there any direct bolt on turbo's that go on the c20let at all that will see a noticable difference? I am very new to the turbo scene so wouldn't know what my options are really

    Thanks

    It's a common problem that the wastegate seat in the standard K16 turbo fittet at the CLET got a crack, and than you got a massive smoke..

    Look here for more details, the site is in Norwegian so you can use the google translate to get in English

    Than i would say that the turbo is your problem..
    How is the engine to drive, does it boost right?

    But as i said, the wastegate seat at the standard k16 turbo's are known for cracking..
    EDS have uprated k16 turbo's and k26 turbos..

    How do you remove the amal valve im told it makes the turbo pull harder and gives less lag?

    Thanks
