    after 91k miles the turbos gone on my S3. I've used the search button but it bring up loads of **** i dont want and cannot find what im looking for so thought id ask here.

    would go down the IHI route but with xmas round the corner and needing the car back on the road quick thats not an option at the min.

    do any of you know any good places that supply recondtioned turbos?

    it was about 600 as a rebuild but it doesnt end there with just bolting a hybrid on! Ring CR as they normally have some turbo's in that you can buy outright

    Sorry ignore the above post by sm_cupra. I'm at his and i accidently replied on his account doh!

    When i got mine done from CR they said they can recon the turbo no matter how bad it is. The guy assured me they have every part there to recon the turbo. I had it sent to them on a monday and it was done and delivered back to the garage on wednesday! Spot on service!

    I'll give them a ring again tomorrow and explain the condition of the turbo and see what they say, cause when I rang them today I hadn't seen the damage

    lol, soz m8, could'nt resist

    i'll get me coat :p

    and as for that turbo! carnage indeed - wow!

    hope no debris went thru the motor.. i would advise dropping off the pipework as far as the first intercooler and fish out any debris which maye be there.. you dont want to put a new turbo on to then injest some of turbo #1 thru the motor - that would ruin your day/week/year

    unlucky dude

    yea this is my job to do,will be stripping all the pipework off for a good inspection and clean,when i took off the tip it had debris right up to the maf and onto the air filter...ouch! what ever happened it even punched a hole through the cold side of the turbo intake,it went bang in one hell of a way lol.
