My td04 has been to midland twice.

First time was a rebuild was 400 quid.

Second time less than a year later, 2k miles later it was smoking so went in again.

Went for the billet wheel and another rebuild, 400 quid again.

mental, that's pretty high mate. I paid 180 on a ct9 hybrid rebuild...

would it be because it's a bigger turbo?

They said the shaft needed replacing the first time. Then oil contamination the second time.

Regardless, i regret spending so much on it.

That's nuts, when you send bits away they have you by the balls sometimes I'm surprised you paid the extra should of been covered that at 2k

I just bought a new core for my td04. Cheaper than a rebuild and still has years warranty. Just don't buy Chinese crap

We send turbos away from work, they always come back with an oil starvation or oil contamination report.

Just means the rebuild place warranty is void.

Anyway this midland td04 is still on my car, mapping at the end of the month, actually a bit of smoke if you would believe it haha.

Options are keep it on and see whats what, or put my vf12 back on which is a bit larger and see what that can do!
