Lol.

Its a luxo-barge. Maybe if we club together we can buy an IBD full of methanol. That MIGHT take it down.

The "unit" is the boost control solenoid. It bleeds off some air to effectively increase the pressure before the wastegate opens.

I mentioned it in my other post.

As far as broken wastegate - sure thats possible! Cat on it? Take it off and see if its caught any "bits"?

I'd take the pipe off the cold snail of the turbo and check the shaft is spinning freely. I'd also check the wastegate is operating smoothly by hand. A little into the yellow is where the turbo runs if you shortcircuit the solenoid altogether, so it seems likely the solenoid it not doing anything - ...

The one on my firebreathing skyline is still fine after a year and 4k miles. Thats got seriously got exhaust gas too, the manifold glows orange and the sensor is just after the turbo.

My guess would be close to 20 if not more.

Bosch 50-80k

Personally i'd buy a universal and splice the plug off my old sensor. Bosch ls4 as per below link:- http://www.lambdasensor.com/main/muniversal.htm Or i'd buy the 35quid one from your link. Though you'd be better off with the bosch. Actually i'd tend to find a 3 wire (new) bosch on ebay and try and ...

lol. The point of fully comp is that you get YOUR car repaired/replaced if you crash, not just whoever you crash into. Its not just so you can drive other cars! Theres plenty of policys that are fully comp but don't have the other cars clause. The best way to get cheap insurance is to drive somethin...
