I think the best route would be to take the turbo off and open it up. Using the cleaner and a good brush clean it all out until its good. Then fit it back.

This is what is happening to mine

Thanks guys, ill get some next week not having any problems with the turbo atm but if i clean it i know its done and don't have to do it till i do its next service.

When i do it is there a gasket to change or some bolts which would need/worth changing with i am doing it?

Are you getting the "sticky vanes' issue?

I would find out how hard it is to remove the turbo and get inside . Looks like it might be the best way and not cost that much more . At least you know its clean !!

Try making your own thread mate you will get more response... you might also want to press a few vowels as you type! dont be afraid to use A E I O and (the other one that this stupid forum changes to YOU)they are just a key press away[:p]

Does the AGR have a variable vane turbo?

It wasn't that effective on mine, I ended up stripping the turbo to clean it manually.

This is what inside looked like when I took it to peices - this is a few weeks after an innotec clean

Woooo. Got a guide for that mate.

WOW !!

If thats all the Innotec is doing then its not the liquid that is the issue..its the method of application. Thats why i will be interested in seeing what "R-Tech" will be doing with mine . IF its not a major job for a garage to remove turbo and open it. Clean and fit back, It will be a lot better all round. Also customer gets to know its really [email protected]!

But even if mine was cleaned by that amount? It still made a big difference !!

Will report back once the car is ready
