    Remap & Sticky Vanes

    Anyone from awsomegti in Manchester about? Looking for some advice. I have a 1.9tdi 105 06 A3 which i want to get remapped. The problem is, i also have sticky vanes (i think) as the car likes to go into limp mode down bypasses etc. Am i better off getting a recon turbo then a remap or can i get away with paying the labor of getting the turbo removed, cleaned, then reattaching, then remap?

    Any advice appreciated.
