    Question Turbo exchange?

    My brain's been making plans my bank balance can't afford...again...

    But in theory, could I swap the low pressure turbo from my Z28NEL for the high pressure one from a Z28NET? Would it be as simple as remove and refit, or would it need complicated a Tech2 session to control boost?

    Or would it just not work?

    Just thinking that there's bound to be some scrapped VXRs around eventually....

    A strange thing on my car is that its a Z28NET engine fitted in a vectra elite, its only a 230 bhp version. The strange thing is that its running Z28NEL software. Does this mean I already have the high boost turbo??
    If so does this mean in theory i could remap the same as a Vxr?

    I was kinda under the impression that the nel was low pressure, and the net was high pressure. They tried to put z28net software on mine but it would not take it as all the other things where for z28 nel.
    Its a nightmare maybe i would have problem if I go for the BSR PPC

    Just out of interest, how do you know it's a low pressure turbo? Are there any markings on it to identify it?

    Just asked him and he has confirmed it is the same unit, just the software controlls its boost output. So the z28nel runs low pressure boost. The z28net runs high pressure boost.
