    IMO everyone should have one of these on an Astra turbo. Prevention is better than cure. I used to get a smell of oil in the cabin of my car, when giving it beans. I had one of these fitted (though I bought it from PercysVXR, not LMF) and I've never had a problem with the smell since. I'd say it's a pretty common problem with VX turbos.

    You exchange it with the oil feed bolt thats already feeding the turbo... straight swap..... lots of views on it though about it not actually being proven to help the turbo and lots of views that it will.... upto you if you want to try it.
