    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SXI

    sounds the same as when my turbo blew. really loud whistle from turbo then it started clattering and clouds of smoke out of the exhaust.

    with mine i found that when i replaced the turbo i had to clean the egr and boost sensor as it chucked oil all through the exhaust system and covered the sensors
