    took mine to turbo technics, cost £257+VAT but it was in a bad way, i got new bearings, 360degree thrust washers and twin oil seals. They fully cleaned it inside and out and gave a full engineers report about it.

    The turbo on my ACT was rebuilt at Turbo Technics. The previous owner had nothing but good things to say about them.

    There is loads of threads on this. TT and TD are the most common.

    I used TD as the don't do the twin seals, as it is not a very good solution for the K04 turbo.

    ^^^ i think that was what was said by another turbo company...a sort of dont go to them come to us statement...
    I can only say turbo technics have been around for along time so they know there stuff and the customer care is second to none...
    best bet would be to ring around some companies and have a chat ...recomendations on a forum can only go so far really...some use tt's some use td's and others use different again...unless you have direct experience with the companies its hard to say who is 'best'

    Not at all.

    I actually spoke with both companies. TT were disinterested and unhelpful. TD were 1000% the opposite. And it was not just one company I asked about the twin seals - I did my research! Several different companies said that. TD even said they can do it if I wanted it, but they don't recommend it.

    Ultimately it is up to you to do some research, have a chat with a few companies and go from there.
