    New Turbo Advice :)

    Hello, currently have a standard turbo on my z20LET which has a cracked manifold now and was looking at upgrading to a VXr unit been looking at the how to's and think it looks ok enough for me to do it myself i was wondering if there is anyone who has changed the turbo themselves if they have any tips or anything to look out for or that could help from there own experience. Many thanks in advance

    thers a really good 10 minute video on youtube somewhere. that helped me a lot im sure somebody knows where it is. just make sure youve got all the new gaskets etc. and prime it properly before you start it the first time.

    replace or thoroughly clean all the oil pipes, feed and return pipes, prime the turbo with oil before starting the engine, buy all new gaskets and seals. i removed and replaced my turbo myself, piece o piss. there is a guide somewhere
