TDV8 TURBO REPLACEMENT! "DIY"

car failed two weeks ago to find out I had one seized turbo the other had took half the sump into the intercooler!
so nothing else for it, buy a ramp and get the body off!.

since the body was off I replaced all wish bone bushes , upper and lower.

2 new land rover turbos, feed pipes, drain pipes, new flexi brake pipes and full set of body trim fixings.

not a job for the faint hearted!

No doubt you still have change left over when comparing the cost of the ramp, turbos and arms to the price of a stealership Turbo replacement?

Excellent work there Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Over for a visit from disco3.co.uk
