I would like to rebuild my turbo, it has 104000 miles on it and I think its time, not that I an having any problems. But here are the questions, number one, Has anyone done a rebuild and upgrade to theirs yet? Number two, are they all KKK K24's in an 04 R? And number three, is a tune absolutely neccesary for the upgrade to be used correctly?<p>Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Turbo Questions???? (Overun73)

If your turbo is running fine why mess with it? <br>Messing with TCV is pretty popular. Or if you have a little of a budget you can get the upgraded turbo from VIVA. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Turbo Questions???? (Denis)

The only reason I am asking about this is because after the car is totally warmed up and I have been pulling alot of vacuum, e.i. going down a long hill, after I step on it again I puff a fairly large cloud of oil smoke. And the general diag on it is my turbo is failing. But I will find out more tomorrow as a Suby performance tech is gonna run it through a compression and leak-down test. And if that all comes up OK then he is gonna pull the DP and check the play in the turbo.
