    Thats cheap, iirc it will be a pallet collection you need, will cost you around £75-£90 up to half a tonne or something, basic block has to be in the region of 120 kg ish

    yea price is not bad

    now I have to look into rebuilding my turbo
    where would I be able to find parts for it ?
    or if anyone has a turbo for about 100 i might consider it

    I will have one but it won't be till middle of next month as the Frankenturbo is getting ordered on the 28th but don't no what the delivery time is and then a date to fit it, can't wait also the hot side (turbine housing) needs replacing as the wastegate penny valve is ready for falling off.

    Rebuilding a turbo is a pecision and expensive process... the shaft has to be balanced for one. But if its run devoid of oil, the turbo will probably be little use as an oily paperweight. The one bradderz has would do you, then you just take the hotside off yours and swap them.

    but i'll PM you later on, may know where there is one cheap.

    Try:

    K03 Turbocharger Passat, Audi A4 1.8 T | eBay UK

    Or

    audi a4 1.8t 5 valve turbo | eBay UK

    May be good ones to consider.
