Be careful, there are jokers out there!
Let's not name names, but when you send your turbo to the experts, you don't expect them to be full of sheet, now do you?
And when they come back and say that your turbo is a bag of crap, what are you expected to do?
Can you argue with the UK's largest turbo remanufacturers?
Can you question the judgement of decades of experience and R&D?
Can you even approach the accuracy of their specialised equipment?
"phhh.....it's gonna costya mate" <sucks air through the teeth>, you expect this approach from a plumber or a hack builder, not a professional setup, the Biggest in the country allegedly
There's no way I'd pay "550 plooz vat" for an exchange unit, when I feel that the turbo is OK
OK, it needs a new bearing after 80K miles, and a wastegate revamp, so what? Big deal! that's why I sent it to you jokers -- noooo, it's cracked, totally out of spec, dead meat, impossible to fix. No new seals for you sir, an exchange unit is your only chance
Well, I kindly asked for my useless pieces of junk to be sent back in a box (they want money to put it back the way you sent it), something the marketing blurb ommits to mention lmao
Sent the box of "junk" to a competitor, they measured everything, "needs a main bearing and wastegate arm mate"
£270+vat all inclusive.
No bull, no technical 'explanations' (as if I'm a moron and didn't understand that they were talking out of their @rses)
Unit's back, looks good to me:
