Thanks in advance!

Dear DS,

I like the look of their website although they are hardly local to either of us !

I’ve sent them an enquiry email re my car ( a 20VT ) and will report on their response.

Can anybody recommend a turbo specialist in Hampshire / Berkshire / Surrey ?

Any reason why you want a turbo specialist in Hants / Berks / Surrey? I've used Turbo Dynamics in the past, they happen to be in Dorset but it wasn't high on my priority list to find a "local" specialist (I only just found out where they are), they probably all do servicing by mail order anyway.

Hi Dave

Location wasn’t a priority but I wanted a cartridge replacement that fitted the OEM housing...

Kind regards,

DS

Sorry darthstinky, my question was aimed at DavidFoster who was asking about a "local" turbo specialist. There's nothing unusual about fitting the turbo, it's just a bit of a squeeze in there, there's a How To on the firum I think...

Dear DG ,

I blame Lockdown brain fade for forgetting that Dorset is so close to me ( I’m fairly new to the area ) .

And I never was very good at Geography ...

Big thanks for the heads up on Turbo Dynamics , who are only about 25 mins away from me .

David Foster.
