    New Turbo needed?

    Thanks for the extra advice. It's not going well. The garage had it up on the ramp and can't see any obvious signs of leakage from pipes. They said it's best to run it as it is for a month and see if it gets any worse. They said that with it being a quatro they can't really get at the turbo from...

    New Turbo needed?

    If the 170 Turbo and manifold would fit straight on, that would be great, like you say it would give me the headroom I needed, but would likely need a remap. I might be able to twist the companies arm who remapped it to map it again for me under warranty since I only had it done a month ago and...

    New Turbo needed?

    I was out last night when I read this. Just managed to get on the link to Darkside today.

    New Turbo needed?

    Hi, I have the Audi A3 8P1 Quatro 2.0 TDI 140, remapped to 178bhp. I've not had the car long and the turbo just last night started to make the dreaded siren sound, not just under load, but at low revs in neutral, both with increasing and decreasing revs. It's quite prominent when I first start...

    Hey.

    I'm new to the Forum. I've got an Audi A3 8P1 Quatro 2.0 TDI 140 with a remap to 178. It's not been straight forward, not had the car long and the turbo has started whistling already. Gonna make a seperate post about that. Gonna post a question but I've done a few things myself too, such as...
