    Hi guys.
    Ok i need some help bad.
    I have just found out that more than likely one of my turbos are leaking and smoke it starting to come out of it, and i would love some suggestions and how how much it would cost

    i spoke to someone and they told me to recoed and then high flowed and then i spoke to someone at ATP (advance turbo performance) and they said the it will just leak on my again and would prob cost about 2 - 2.5 K at least

    Can anyone give my some guidance one what i should do and how much im looking at spending please :confused::confused::confused::(:(:(

    2-2.5k is horse shit, can buy new turbos for that.

    2.5k is hopefully to remove, re-co and replace.

    That's about the going rate for high flows, but for not much more you can get the much better GT2560R's. On top of that figure you will have to get them changed (engine out job).

    If you don't want to spend the $$ on upgrading, get these from Coz Clicky

    Impossible to advise you on whether that price is reasonable without knowing the full story. Its about right if that includes removal and refit.

    Can you do any of the work yourself?

    Those brand new centers chrispy mentioned are probley cheaper than paying someone to rebuild yours.

    Piece of piss to install. Just need some man size circlip pliers. Clock them the right way and check your wastegate actuators are opening at hte right pressure. If you are confident to remove and fir the turbo's, you can do this.

    you could have potentially overfilled your oil and hence oil getting past the seals.
