I have a lot of play in the turbo and smoke from the exhaust. Is it time for a rebuild?
Have good compression on the engine and head has recently been rebuilt, new guides. So, smoke not from the engine, I think.
What do you suggest, I tried a couple of local companies for a rebuild but no reply to emails or phone. Had a quote of turbo technics at min £195 or £400 full rebuild if needed plus vat. Is this my best option.
Other option is eBay £120 new T3, are these Chinese sub-standard and not a good idea.
Basically, after advice, looking to retain a relatively standard metro turbo engine.
Thank you

I’ve used turbo technics a lot in the past, never had a problem
Shouldn’t be hardly any play in the turbo do id send it off for starters
When a turbo blows it’s normally a cloud of white smoke
Blue isn’t unusual if the seals are on there way out

Thank you Colin,

I should have said it is in the back of a Coupe.
