Right, my turbo on my Z20LET is dead and needs replacing and I've decided it would be silly not to get a VXR turbo being in the position that I'm in. The questions is this - buy the turbo, fitting kit etc and fit myself (costing around £650). Or take to a well known Vauxhall tuners who have quoted just shy of £1k to supply and fit but I'll get a 12 month warranty on parts and labour.
I've looked at the fitting and whilst it doesn't look too difficult, I've never done anything that major before and if I blow another one I will obviously be seriously out of pocket. On the other hand, whilst the other option gives me piece of mind, it costs another £300.
Opinions please - I want my car back to normal asap
