Alternative to stealership turbo
I have a 2004 Audi A4 1.8t Quattro. Ihave posted in the forums before and everyone is a great help.
My problem is car was very sluggish (cannot get out of its own way) cel came on and have a 0299 code. After searching forums i changed the DV valve, N75 and a couple of hoses most notable the turbo intake wich was cracked. after the changes cel is still on and still get code. brought car to a reputable shop and they said the turbo was toast and there was a lot of play in the impella.
i priced a new turbo and a reman from the stealership and the reman is about $750.00 with $100 core charge and new is about $1500.00.
Iam not looking to do any mods just looking for a more reasonable alternative.
My wife just had a baby so time is of the essence.
thank you in advance for all the help.
