    Corsa D VXR turbo

    Mate has a seized turbo on his Corsa D VXR and is taking the sensible approach of fitting a 2nd hand turbo rather than fitting a brand new one (small risk there is some wear on the engine....) Anyone know a good place to source one? breakers? here: https://www.aet-turbos-shop.com/collections/turbos/products/test-vauxhall-corsa-vxr-1-6p-189hp-2007-turbo-53039880110-oem-55355617 recon on ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Turbocharger-for-Vauxhall-Astra-Corsa-Insignia-Meriva-1-6-Turbo-VXR/162792668343?hash=item25e732fcb7:g:QnIAAOSwh1haMOw Thanks Dave

    Westfield Mazda Turbo

    Please do keep a close eye on water temps Don't go on track expecting it to hold up with the stock rad and an intercooler in front of it Give it some welly on the road (lots of hard acceleration - legal of course) and see how both your intake and water temps behave Good luck
