    Vehicle : Facelift Insignia/Corsa D

    Trim : LE/VXR

    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Year : 13/07

    Default Turbo re-build costs...

    How much am I looking at to get my turbo re-built? And who's best for the job?

    I getting traces of oil coming from the inlet side of the turbo, I know this can be normal but only up till a point. The car now has a puff of blue smoke on start up so i'm thinking it may be time to give the turbo/engine a bit of an overhaul.

    I can re-build the engine myself but the turbo is way out of my league

    I'm gonna replace the clutch and other bits an pieces at the same time (any suggestions?) Its a 2.2dti with 102k on the clock and i'm pretty sure it's a garrett GT1544V thats fitted

    give the likes of turbo technics a call, they will be able to source a similar unit with an increased compressor wheel from about 49 i think to something upto about 55... i'm certain they were able to do this with the gt18v which was on the Vec B's & saabs

    What kind of turn around do they have? I don't mind the car being off the road for a week or so but I don't want to be waiting weeks on end for it to appear

    Mine was back within 7 working days, doing a standard Turbo should be quicker. Give them a call and see what they say
