Have they given you the correct turbo that you wanted? and not a smaller one?

Just pissed off , really can't be bothered at the moment .

We are going to do a pressure test on the inlet side and check timing but the engine hasn't changed and it made 475 on its old turbo.

That's exactly what the mapper said , he spoke to turbo technics and it has the right covers but could have wrong internals ?

It made perfect power for the s209 , our s205 s little brother

Ive read alot of bad reviews about turbo technics with them messing up and poor customer service never used them myself only fitted there hybrid t2 wich pissed more gasses out of it than the back box and that was a brand new unit i replaced it back with the old unit and took the car back to the customer total waste of my time think the tubby was sent back and refunded .

Hey guys so have sent turbo back to turbo technics for strip down and inspection and... Had a call back from an ignorant American guy who said turbo is fine no issues with actuator or anything! He did try to tell me that I may need to retard the timing by up to 10 degrees to get any power out of it and to fit a restrictor pill to the boost solenoid...so much for a standard fit turbo!!!!

So annoyed with them...double checked compression and cylinder leakage and it's spot on. Can only mean engine is sound...checked for boost leaks and that's ok too. Which I guess just leaves a boost leak...getting so fed up :-( we only changed sodding turbo and ended up with less power than a standard worn turbo grrrr

Doubt they will refund us, it's been on the car for bout 6 months, we know we have only done mapping mileage on it but no proof of that so doubt we would. Get anything without a fight which I can't be arsed with.
I don't see why retarding the timing should help if it's standard fit anyway-wa***rs

if you used a credit card they fight it and are equally liable, and retarding the timing will do feck all except lose power.

Not noticed anything , I can see why though the engine bay is small and the intercooler is tiny!

But also it's been cold and wet since we collected but once your moving it must cool quickly , do miss the 4 wheel drive it does spin like crazy .
