Thank for all the feedback.
I have ordered a new turbo from Turbo active for £595 ( Nissan price is £1050) and getting independent to fit. is 3 hours normal to fit, I have been quoted 10-12 hours?
Nissan also said we should change the intercooler, oil feed pipes etc, does anyone have any experience of how necessary this is?
Intercooler should at least be flushed out of any excess oil ( they do have a bit in them anyway) as if its full of oil due to turbo going, as soon as you get it hot with the new turbo on it could
run off on the oil and do another turbo in.
Oil feed pipe should always be checked for bloackage anyway as if blocked, no oil getting to turbo bearings results in seized turbo!
obviously do an oil and filter change at the same time!
3 hours is about right, not a bad job to do!
