ok so i had the bus in and the turbo is defernatly buggered now i cntacted ford for a replacement one and to my amazment they wanted £1415 +vat and fitting so i was looking at a small fortune so i chased a couple of favours from some friends and managed to source a brand new unit for £650 +vat but i mnaged to find out that the turbo is a k04 unit these are widley used on vw's vauxhalls and many other manufactuors now the one on my bus is a k04-033 now im lead to beleive that the astra vxr uses the k04-049 wich im lead to beleive is a bigger unit to the one on the bus now yes i would like the extra power but the man reason i am looking into this is that the astra vxrs turbo is avalable with all uprated inturnals thrust bearings etcand they are avalable from £300 including vat wich will be not only a great saving but a good power increase at the same time so any help or information on the astra's turbo would be greatly apreciated thanks ging

Can't help on the turbo question but I just wanted to say I really like your car. Those front lights with subtle white colouring looks mint!!
