    Default Need a new turbo but can I go bigger?

    I have a 2003 2.2dti and the garrett turbo has died. I have been looking at replacing it with a standard new unit....but was wondering could I squeeze a bit more power out of the car whilst leaving the interccoler standard and maybe fitting a bigger turbo for a few extra horses?

    You could send yours for refurb and ask them to tweak/hydrid it. Best way is to speak with a few turbo places and give them the turbo model and ask what they can do with it above standard.
    The wifes vec show car is currently being stripped for parts before i scrap it, keep an eye on the sales section.. https://www.vectra-c.com/forum/garage_vehicle.php?do=view_vehicle&id=709
