    Why's my newer 2nd hand turbo feel shi**er then my old one!?

    Hi guys iv got a 2nd hand turbo off a golf mk4 (i think) same engine code/part number etc. it had done 84k and my turbo had done 212k oh yh my cars an a3 tdi (not the fastest car around but does the trick). With the newer turbo the car feel **** dnt even like driving it anymore. :(

    Its like a lot of build up of power and not much kick at all, my other turbo still used to give it some. Old turbo needed a new actuator found one but the guy that fixed my car said no point as the vacum part of the turbo wont hold or release power( i think he was chatting ****) he charged me a £120 to change the turbo and put new pipes:mad:

    any idea's of what to do about this turbo???? there's no major play or movment.
