    Manic - if only I made a little more coin...

    low income + 300tdi ownership = premature grey hair...

    Yep. I got mine from them. On my doorstep in 4 days, and is great.

    However, you will need a kickass pair of circlip pliers. That circlip is a beast.

    I see you are in Vic. If you are anywhere near me you are welcome to borrow mine.

    Can you stick with what you have until you save another 600 for a VNT? The power boost will be worth the wait!
    Thanks for your reply manic.

    Photo showing bent blades should appear below.

    It's been like this for a few months now with no sign of getting worse but a wheel traveling as such high RPMs... I think I'd feel more comfortable with it in better nick.

    And yes, VNT is on the shopping list next time round...

    If you are on a budget, just replace the cartridge. You can get a replacement for around $200.

    Thanks johntins, that's a very kind offer (and my sister lives out your way in Kallista) but I'm getting my brother/mechanic to assist and he's up in the nation's capital.

    Is the circlip you speak of the big one that encircles the cartridge (see picture below taken from YouTube video)?

    Yeah, that doesnt look good. Maybe set your vnt savings back a little and get a straight replace cartridge.

    In the mean time, if you have not already done so, you can open up the exhaust and intake, push the boost towards 18psi, bigger intercooler and up the fuel.

    That's the one. Thing is, he's probably already had that one out. They get buildups of rust and grime. Very stiff, and the clip itself is very strong.
