I'd leave it alone. A new turbo is more likely to fail in the next 100K than your tried-and-true original. They tend to die young or outlive the vehicle.BigAndy said:I've gotten almost 130,000 miles out of it now
I'm at 312500 km on the original turbo on my A3. I just replaced all vacuum lines this weekend and installed a boost gauge. Peaking at 18 and settling at 13 psi all the way to 5000 rpm.P2B said:I know of two A3 turbos with 300,000+ KMs and one with almost 450,000 still going strong. Mine only has 230,000
