I thought i'd post my experience of a VAG tuner based in Stoke on Trent
As some of you will know, my turbo had a slight issues late last year after my cylinder head was replaced, possibly due to 5ltrs of oil being used when it was serviced. Anyway mistakes happen and i don't have any hard feeling towards the person who did it.
After looking at all the options i could have gone for i decided to go for a new Borg Warner KKK K04, after Kev achieving 293bhp out of his K04 i would be more than happy with anything near that!
I didn't want to remove the head again until i want to do the rods so i contacted a few places to ask how they would replace the turbo and i chose PSI Tuning, Pete at PSI Tuning assured me that the turbo will be replaced without removing the head and to my surprise at the price of £140+vat.
The car was booked in for today and i was greeted by Andy on arrival (09:30). I also bought a Neuspeed 180f thermostat from Awesome GTI for them to fit. I was offered many hot drinks as i sat in he waiting room! The car was completed at 17:00 and it was thoroughly checked before the keys were handed over to me.
People have good and bad experiences, my experience of PSI Tuning from start to finish has been positive, both Pete and Andy were extremely helpful with any question i had for them and i would recommend them to anyone.:applaus:
Just incase your wondering my turbo wasn't in good shape, there were cracks in a few places on the hotside and there was slight back/forward play. The car now feels 'lighter' and eager to move! So i'm happy:sm4:
Pics of the turbo, the white stuff is where it's been leaking from the cracks
You can just see the crack in the middle
