    I'm not actually sure of the technical term its my boyfriends car and the garage wasn't very specific but to be very basic it was a 'plastic box'???? if that means anything to you.

    No, a plastic box doesn't mean anything to me. If you should become aware of any further details of what happened, and are willing to share them, I for one would be very interested. As I hope our replies have demonstrated, on this forum we try to help if we can. Any photos of the area or item that failed would be really helpful.

    I'll be honest, if that's the best a garage can come up with and then tell you you need a new engine and turbo I'd be seeking a second opinion before you do anything

    We have absolutley no idea what happened, when all of this happened it caused the tming chain to snap which in turn i believe broke everything else.
