well my car started making a loud whining noise under boost yesterday and had it looked at today. looks like the turbo is on its way out. the bearing has a bit of play in it and the blades are catching the body under boost and causing the whine. its an AMK with 72k and currently mapped by jabbasport to 277 with graphs.
what to do now...
fix it with a standard turbo and sell it.
trade it in while its not smoking etc
fix it with a big turbo and silly power with stronger bottom end etc.
i had a decent chunk of money saved for a mk5 golf gti so either of the above options is definitely feasable its just which route to go down.
i have to admit i dont know masses about turbos and whats best etc but im definitely open to options.
please help me people
