    Hi Baza1819,

    I'm in the same boat as you :( My turbo has started to make a whinney noise, almost sounds like I have a small dump valve installed sometimes.

    I have been umming and arring about either getting a new turbo or repairing mine but cannot decide. This company was suggested to me by a friend of a friend: Turbo Reconditioning - Reconditioned Turbos - Turbochargers UK | Midland Turbo

    I do plan to re-map my engine at a later date, so perhaps the new turbo would be the better option, just encase!?

    Anyone else had experience repairing/reconditioning/replacing turbo's?

    I heard bout a place in Leeds, they refurb or upgrade your turbo to hybrid for a fair price - mine already mapped - it's unreal now
