    interesting, cheaper than a whole turbo, worth the hassle of fitting it all yourself? very possibly, but if they are selling that with the uprated bits, maybe they sell the uprated bits and you can recon your own?

    If the work on its good, i suppose you cant actually go wrong being it the complete unit, just the two manifold to bolt over it

    reconditioning a turbo is slightly different to other bits the ordinary DIYer can do

    getting the balancing right is the main thing - something i would not recommend u do - despite what certain ppl claim to have successfully achieved

    wanted a stage 1/2 turbo but the guy selling one decided not to sell so its either stage 1 for 700 or look at other options

    no way am i buying another std one so need options.

    this however looks a definite contender....if of course i can establish some more details on said company etc.

    Keep me posted with what you find out about the company as i will be looking into this option seems they have already sold 3 on ebay, in theory if you order the vxr version and bolt it onto a zlet will it in theory be a vxr turbo as that is the essential parts ? lol

    That's an LET turbo tho, code ends in 024 where as the VXR is an 049 I believe.

    Will a vxr core fit into a zlet housing? It will make it a vxr turbo then in essence ? minus the actuator
