    Question TURBO problem

    Why's my newer 2nd hand turbo feel shi**er then my old one!?

    Hi guys iv got a 2nd hand turbo off a golf mk4 (i think) same engine code/part number etc. it had done 84k and my turbo had done 212k oh yh my cars an a3 tdi (not the fastest car around but does the trick). With the newer turbo the car feel crap dnt even like driving it anymore.

    Its like a lot of build up of power and not much kick at all, my other turbo still used to give it some. Old turbo needed a new actuator found one but the guy that fixed my car said no point as the vacum part of the turbo wont hold or release power( i think he was chatting crap) he charged me a Ł120 to change the turbo and put new pipes

    any idea's of what to do about this turbo???? there's no major play or movment.

    cheers

    I would vag.com it to find out if there are any fault codes present.

    In the VCDS section there is a sticky with guy from the forum that have vag.com...
    2001 A3 1.9tdi 130pd (Aka "Osama Bin Diesel") 130bhp 310NM = PMSL
    Done:

    EGR switched off using vag.com. Full no expenses spared service. Refurb Gearbox, new clutch/flywheel.
    In the works:
    Mk II TT Steering wheel (No Airbag), vag.com switchable 3 stage map. Big brake kit. Hybrid turbo.
