    as above guys the old turbos starting to sound like a siren, powers droppin off n moneys tight. A decent cores much cheaper than an exchange unit but is it doable, any special tools needed etc. Any help would be great i just want the old wagon pullin well again

    Dead easy job on our wastegate turbos as there is nothing to set up unlike VNT turbos and only basic tools required! You may well be able to do it without completely removing the turbo too.

    I know the feeling, saving my pennies for a walnut blasting decoke next month. My turbo is quite tired too, don’t think it’ll be long before it needs some attention.
