    well the ones on the 2.0T z20net petrol engine were the thin metal types ... which were directional

    ... so i think you need to ask someone like Neutron who's had the turbo's in and out of this Dirty Diesel more times that i've had hot dinners

    lol ye good thinking just pm'd him. i'm sure i read somewhere they upgraded the gasket but can't find it anywhere. i know the gasket they sent for the turbo side of the oil return pipe is a different on than the original, The original was one of trhe thin metal ones but the new one is a thicker one. Cheers Tommy
