    i don't think you can buy the turbo parts separteraly, if you contact KKK as they make the turbo's they may be able to help you. what is up with yours?

    hi there. i want a new chra as i have gone through 3 turbo repair kits in the last 6 months and im getting tired of the smoke, i just want it fixed for good, i did have the turbo looked at by a turbo centre in huddersfield, they said i needed a new core but i have just been putting repair kits in it since, i have also changed vavle stem seals and piston rings and i have added the oil ristrictor to the turbo, but still it keeps getting lots of somke after a fue hundred miles , and as there is a lot of play on the shaft each time i look inside the turbo, the chra is sort of the last thing i can think of it being, any advice would be welcome, thanks rob

    precat decat is fully legal and its just for start up emissions and therefore not an aspect of the MOT anyway

    u can buy the chra individually tho as ive seen them in the past - quick google or ebay should come up trumps
