    in relation to question 2-3 replace it don't recondition it..i've personally heard to many issue with reconditioned ones... even awesome gti themselves told me not worth reconditioning...

    for question 1 not entirely sure another member can possibly inform you as i have a TFSI not TDI... it may be feasible though... but not sure if you'd have to remap again...

    if you want bigger turbo you need to buy a hybrid turbo the 170pd isnt a direct replacement but it had been done and does make good power with the right mods

    Garret is what is on your car at the moment. Car parts for less do a oem turbo but personally I would go the hybrid route as they are designed to take more power so will last longer.

    I'm afraid I don't no the part number as I haven't fitted one myself. But amd Essex are good for information. You also need to change to oil feed pipe aswel plus exhaust system to allow extra gases to flow.

    Putting a hybrid turbo sounds expensive. As I have to do further more mods on it to accommodate the hybrid turbo.

    I'm in Manchester can some one help and sort my problem out... I'm sooooo confused!!!

    You don't need a new turbo until its screaming and people in the street turn around thinking its a police car.

    Until it reaches that level of noise, drive on.

    I very much doubt that's including a new oem turbo fitted with new gaskets, nuts etc.

    I would check if that is with brand new or recon'd & includes vat as I'm suspicious of that price.

    PM for a price mate.

    i beg to differ i put mine on dyno had no screaming what happens turbo smashes to peices the explosion was so bad metal peices were found all the way up into the maf, so replace asap dont wait for it to get worse, hybrid is expensive but worth it if your keeping the car for while, mine was £1000 but milltek was £855 then i fitted new intercooler also forge hoses, catch can, so many mods but i had these all done before i knew turbo was going to blow up

    See, mine was screaming so loud you could hear it in the next street away. There was no play in the shaft and no contact between the turbine and the casing. However, these turbos whine ever so slightly normally, and people come on here and are told to replace it because it whines. For all you know it could last another 60k on that whining turbo.

    Its bearing becoming loose and as soon as they give way the shaft will moves and compressor wheels will hit the casing an dvend if your lucky, my turbo the shaft snapped clean off and smashes into a million peocesewhilst spinningand ended up everywher which is why you should change it. I had to change a boost hose due to the metal peices shreading it, so dont wait and just have it done as it will just end up costing you more and more if you wait for it to blow up

    I've done 40k with my turbo whining like a police siren and its still going fine 😃 you can get a garage to remove it and inspect it. As if it doesn't need replacing your wasting money.

    I think the hybrid turbo is costing me too much..,
    I've booked it in for a new oem turbo replacement.

    Also should I get a blow off valve placed? Would that help take the pressure if the turbo as my car has been remapped ?????
    Can someone answer that please???

    I'm in the exact same boat as you! In thinking of getting a recon unit with 2 year Warrentee from essex turbo for £400. But after seeing what people say about recons it's making me think twice... I really don't want to pay a fortune. Do you REALLY need to add the extras when getting a hybrid, can't it just be mapped down to work nicely?

    instead of changing the whole exhaust system maybe you can just to the cat back and DP... should save you 400quid
