    Hey,

    I have just had my engine fully reconditioned, it seems now there is quite abit more turbo lag than previously.

    I notice it more in 2nd gear, just nothing then all of a sudden kicks me in the face.

    It was never like this before.

    The turbo blow off also sounds alot quieter aswell??

    Any ideas

    Check the turbo pipe work is fully secure at the turbo, intercooler & EGR. If the engine was rebuilt these pipes would have been moved/removed & re fitted.

    drives lovely bar the lag, it may just be when its cold tbh.

    Would this make a huge difference when cold then?? more lag??
