    Default Turbo upgrade thread

    Hi all.

    I'm going to use this thread for help, advice, tips and tricks for my upgrade.

    Have finally decided to go for it and upgrade the turbo for a TD04 14t and the 381cc injectors from the Saab. I have spoke the neo brothers and have a good deal on everything I need. Just waiting on a check to clear than I'm all go.

    The only thing I'm worried about is connecting the oil and water lines and getting the gaskets, seals ect.

    All help and knowledge is welcome. I'm going to need it lol.

    Lol only in one eye now. Its not a bad write up, I wish I had done one but we were engrossed in the job. It is not as hard as you think to do, you do need to be prepared to deal with snapped studs so having a number for a business who can do these at short notice is a bonus.

    Just a quick question.

    If I fit the turbo and injectors would I be able to drive it before I got it mapped? Basically need to drive about 100miles to get it mapped
