    Default Corsa D VXR middle of turbo slight oil leak


    Just registered on to vxr online today, recently bought myself a corsa vxr in red 2nd hand 60,000 miles and so far i have.....

    bought :
    18 inch corsa vxr wheels
    painted them in poweder coat ultra high gloss black
    225/40/ tyres all round
    ram air filter
    m32 gearbox recon
    dual mass fly wheel
    oil and filter

    and carried out a full service myself

    During the process of the service i found that the turbo had a slight and very slight oil leak from what i would call the connection and bracket holding the middle of the turbo together.

    i purchased the car knowing it had a bit of a turbo issue but didnt realise it was this severe.....the turbo pulls like a t*** and has loads of power (think it has been remapped also) and its when i high gear at low revs chucks out the odd plooooooom of black/blue smoke.

    i know being a mechanic that this will leed to turbo issues along the way but at the moment its currently still operating fine but just smokes a touch!

    could anyone share any experiences regarding similar please???????

    give us a follow on insta for photographs of the car and the odd video of the car

    hope that wasnt to boring
