    Anyone with a S7 turbo?

    KERMA is still avoiding my calls and emails. I still do not have a replacement turbo nor do I have any solid reasoning as to why he has not sent me a replacement or repaired turbo. The last conversation (several weeks ago) was just to try and up sell me different tuning and a discounted new...

    Anyone with a S7 turbo?

    Well its been over 2 months now and all Kerma wanted to do is come up with different reasons why my turbo broke in half. First, it was premature bearing wear, then it was over boost, then it was contaminated oil, then, improper tuning, then too much duty cycle on the n75, then big injectors...

    Anyone with a S7 turbo?

    I shipped it out UPS this past Friday. Had to fly back home to Tampa today, I didnt sell the car, buyer bought another TDI, so as soon as I get a replacement turbo I will fly back up again swap out the VNT17 and bring it back home. Drove it around this weekend and its just so much fun to drive...

    Anyone with a S7 turbo?

    Caught a flight back up to NC yesterday to take off the Borg turbo and reinstall my old VNT17. I shipped my old vnt and tools up so they would be here when I arrived. I got to first say, the VNT17 even worn out and leaking oil out the exhaust side is a much more responsive turbo than the borg...

    Anyone with a S7 turbo?

    I do know that the boost with this new turbo was much slower to rise and less boost than the vnt17. Floored from complete stop, but best observed was a hard pull in 3rd gear, it would boost up to around 19psi might hit 20 then after around 3200 rpm it would then start to climb a little to around...

    Anyone with a S7 turbo?

    I got to thinking this morning and went out to VAG the car to see which ecu I had in it. I guess I was confused as to what car has what. I remember that the RC 5 would not work, but it was my 03 that it didnt work in. Its actually in this car and the rc2/3 obviously in my 03 and I think my 01...

    Anyone with a S7 turbo?

    Yes I got that because he said I needed it. I installed it same time. I told the sales guy what I had and he said that's what I needed instead of the boost valve I original had on it with the vnt17. So I eliminated the boost valve.

    Anyone with a S7 turbo?

    I had bought a RC5 a couple years ago thinking I would start driving it, but was not able to get it to work so just kept the old RC2/3. I literally never drive the car. I bet I have only put 2000 miles on it in the last 5 or 6 years. 750 were to drive it to NC the other day. My friend has been...

    I spoke to 2 more people at Kerma and they finally told me to ship it back to them and they will send it off to Borg Warner and have it evaluated. May take a couple weeks tho. I will let you guys know what all happens.

    Anyone with a S7 turbo?

    I just spoke to someone at Kermatdi and the guy didnt have a clue about anything I was asking. Seems he was looking up the info on the website because he then read it off to me word by word as I see it on the site. Anything outside of what he could read off to me, he was clueless. Then he...
