    Hi all,

    After recently having my full service I was informed that my turbo is on its way out.

    Are there any other bigger turbos that will bolt on without too much trouble? (Is it even worth getting a bigger turbo?)

    My car is a 2005 A3 1.9tdi (Remapped)



    Thankyaaaar :thumbsup:

    You can get a turbo off ebay which is the same as your turbo but with gt1749vc (pd170) internals for £410 delivered, then get a set off arl/asz/blt pd130/pd150 injectors and a custom map to suit and you will easily be over 200bhp.
