Hi, I have a * 130tdi pd... Had some strange noises on boost, loss of power, lumpy running. Anyway, it turns out my turbo is shagged and I need a new one.

I'm from Cov and I need to find a decent supplier for a replacement or recon job of the turbo. Anywhere in the Cov/Leicester/B'ham area is good, I don't need it fitted just supplied.

Been quoted £380+vat from Midland Turbo but I have read some mixed reviews. Any other suggestions would be welcomed.

I'm also wondering if it is worth upgrading to a bigger/better turbo at the same time. Car is currently standard but I might like to remap it in the future.

Yeah, I'm probably going to go with them. The amount of positive reviews seem to cancel out the couple of bad ones I have seen.

Still waiting for the guy who has my car to get time to take the old turbo off - at the moment I don't know what state it is in or if it can be refurbed or not. Apparently I'm gonna need a new airbox and fiter too as there is oil in there from the turbo - sounds like it blew up big time.

New ones seem to cost around £600 + VAT. [:O]

i had my pd 130 turbo made into a hybrid for £450 all new seals everything
Hi, a couple of questions:

Where did you get that done?

I assume that increases performance? If so is a remap required?

Any other parts required to fit that hybrid or was it a bolt on bolt off job?
