    TDI 170 Turbo dying

    Hi All,
    I know there's been a lot of posts about this, spent the last half hour searching and can't find what I'm after.

    I've got a 2007 A3 TDI170 SLine. It's had a whistle for quite a while, which is getting worse. I've had intermittent white/blue smoke and intermittent kangerooing in traffic - oh and occasionally a lumpy idle.

    It's thrown into limp mode twice, had a friend read it and its coming back as boost pressure and I'm in need of a new turbo.

    Are recons any good and where's the best place to supply/ recon my turbo in West Yorkshire.

    Thanks

    Check its not your intercooler hoses that are leaking or the seals on the hoses are doing their job properly as they can cause the same issues.
