    Turbo rebuild. This part?

    If my turbo is smoking badly and losing oil will replacing the whole core with this fix the problem?

    I'm not very clued up on turbo's but am quite handy with tools and would try to do the repair myself.

    Probably VXR as the ZLET one has been replaced by the VXR at Vauxhall

    I've got a 2nd hand 1 that i'm in the middle of buying at the moment. I'll have 3 z20let turbos when i get that 1.
    Think i'm gonna order the 40 quid repair kit and have a mess about with 1 of the spare 1's to see if i can do it. Won't be a great loss if i can't.
