    So today I started to strip my audi 1.8t sport , I brought the car with the turbo gone literally plumes off smoke out the exhaust , so I gav it a rev an u could tell the turbo wasn't spoiling up , so anyway I bought it got it brought bk on a recovery truck an when we got bk there was an oil trail from the exhaust were the back box joins to the centre pipe , we got the car off the truck but it was late so I pushed it on the driveway an tht was that , the next day I went out in the morning an all out the end of the back box an the join there was oil all over the drive lol , I took the intercooler off ( standard one ) an it was full off oil when I took the pipe of the top it jus pissed oil everywhere oil again , roughly about 1.5 litres if not more , cleaned it all out , an then refitted it , toolkit the exhaust off so I can now replace the turbo an that's full of oil to , plus I can't get my back box off , I carried on removed my coolant , turbo mount, an oil feeds , before u kno it the turbos of, an I didn't get it out a little research an people are saying it goes down ( thou the exhaust channel ) an up thou were the manifold , so I tried both I couldn't get it down so I removed the manifold an then brought it up , I'm about to order the turbo k03s an gaskets an ill repost when it's arrived etc , but it's a pretty straight forward job jus common since , image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg My friend came round an also pointed out to me my forge splitter had been put on the wrong pipes an that's probably wats cause my TURBS to go, I got some centre caps for my wheels an the didn't fit I had to chop the centre out of them to make hem fit in properly , image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg
