    Having my car remmaped for about a two month now the turbo has decided to blow, it's an Audi a3 pd130 remmaped to 185bhp 320lbs torque, pannel filter milltek decat and cat back. As I was driving the car quite hard the turbo gave up, bearings rattling and a lot of smoke, as I am getting a hybrid turbo conversion in September I'm needing a second hand turbo or my turbo reconditioned untill then any help on where I could buy a turbo and what to look out or when buying and fitting the turbo would be really appriciated. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for that, I have now found a source for a turbo i just need the part number, i knows its a Garrett GT17 but they need the specific part number, i know u can find it on the turbo housing but it meens jacking the car up removing the sump guard and reading from the turbo, does anyone have a part number for a PD130 A3 TDI on a 51 Reg?

    spent all my money on the car the way it is, im waiting untill september untill i get my university loan, upgrading the turbo alone i could afford now, but the clutch will not last 10 miniutes and I would hate to try and stop with standard brakes running 250bhp+ along with the turbo conversion there will be a sachs paddle cultch and single mass flywheel, TT brake conversion and a FMIC, i carnt afford all that untill september so recond turbo will have to see me through untill then. I was thinking about ringing audi and doing that but wold they give the part number without a deposit? the stealers arnt daft :think:

    Absolutely, jabbasport tuning specialise in the conversion along with a few other tuning companies, the hybrid turbo's come from the PD150 turbo which is then sent to a turbo tuner such as turbo dynamics who replace the bearings, fans ect, the turbo will definately need mapped once again and the intercooler useually will need upgraded along with the clutch to withstand the extra power, when the conversion in done correctly the hybrid diesels run around the 260bhp with an optional 15bhp on top if wather methanol is used, and 400lbs of torque. You dont see many diesels running that power around and thats why im so keen to do it, especially because of the torque.
