My car has been great since I've owned it, apart from it developing the dreaded smoking issue. It burps clouds of blue smoke when I pull away from lights and when its on a hot idle it chuffs away slightly whiter but oily horrible smelling smoke. It uses a shit load of oil and my turbo is standard @ 78,000 miles so I'm almost certain its the cause of the smoke.
I'm going to go for a VXR Turbo mainly as its a cost effective option, however I need to know exactly what to buy etc...
I went to Vauxhall and got them to price me up the whole lot but it came to £968 in VAT which I then got down to trade price as my uncle used to be mates with the guy who was doing it. That price included various new hoses and a new crankcase breather pipe as mine is blocked with crap...
The turbo though comes up at £550 odd and I'm sure I recall it being available cheaper elsewhere?
Also I would quite like to get it mapped after having all this done, do red dot offer a parts fitting service or are they just tuners?
Thanks very much, Joe.
