    Yeah the vxr turbo does just bolt straight on. Cheapest place at the mo i think is regal autosport £470 odd. They will adjust the actuator for u b4 they send it so it's set up for a zlet.
    Everything u will need can be found on this page http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...ad.php?t=96551
    Under vxr turbo. Ignor the last 6 items from that list because you won't need them, don't take much notice of the price either because of the vat increase.
    If you become a full paid member on here you can use the 'tradeclub' account number for your local main dealers if they do the trade club and you will get more discount. I think I paid £70 ish pounds for all the gaskets, bolts and washers from my local dealer when I changed my turbo at Xmas.
    Hope this helps you out.
    Paul.

    You will also need to give it a service at the same time, again oil is about £17 and filter is about £3 on the tradeclub. Obviously its all gm stuff which is brilliant for our cars, don't get roped in to paying £50 odd for oil etc gm oil is the best for our cars in my opinion and at that price you can afford to give it a service more regularly say every 3-5k.

    You can think they sell them on eBay but then there's the whole issue of making sure it's all balanced etc. If you don't wanna new turbo then u could send it away to be reconditioned to places like CR Turbos, Turbo Dynamics etc but depending on what they find it maybe cheaper to just buy a new vxr unit. But ring them for prices etc just google them
