    Default My car back from the garage!!!

    I've picked up the car from the garage this evening and it's all finally sorted and washed. They threatened to polish it, but I told them not to for obvious reason.

    Anyway, it's had a new manifold, turbo and various gaskets here and there, so my question to you guys is should I treat her like a new car and let it run in again? Obviously the tuning box is going to stay off for a while.

    Thanks in advance
    Alex

    I see your point micky.

    Does anyone know if a new turbo has to be run in or can you use it normally?

    Yep, I'd agree - especially with a new turbo.

    Bed the new turbo in matey. 500-1000 miles will be perfect. All the gaskets heat up and seal nicely, and cool down.

    Glad you got it back ok Is it all good?
