Vanes have been checked by BTN Turbo when it was rebuilt 15,000 miles ago. Says in report Vanes assembly moves freelyYeah clean the vanes before you put it in
I would do, but not sure the cars being kept yet, this is just a stop gap to keep the car going until i decide. bigger turbo means silly money and clutch etcGet a bigger turbo ;-)
Be careful on the oil feed pipe decision! Depends where you get it from, but I work for Euro Car Parts and if you don't change the oil feed pipe it invalidates the warranty on the turbo!Thanks, would it be worth changing the oil feed pipe while iam at it ?
