Just replaced the turbo on my 99 AHF 1.9 as part of a huge list of bits to be done to the car and I naively just swapped the fixings over (with new oil feed and return lines) and bolted it on. With the engine now up and running, I notice that the engine now hangs a little on over run and seems slower to pick up (revving freely).

I’m guessing this is a case of setting up the actuator? What and how is this done?

you adjust the nut on the rod that connects to the vnt lever, turn it left to make it spool later, right to make it spool earlier (right shortens the length) tip do it in small turns, 90 degrees at a time, (1/4th of a full turn) to get it to the right distance and it boosting as it should. you can fine tune it by making smaller turns, in the opposite direction, if it boosts to quickly...

make sure you mark the starting point first (aka mark the position it is in right now) just incase you've messed up so you can put it back where it was and start over.
