D, my symptoms were boost at only 1500 - 2250 then the mil would come on and she would go in to overboost, i.e. no go until you changed gear again. Did the normal diagnostics, made sure no vacuum leaks to the vacuum control diaphragm so sticking vanes was the last step. 1/2 hr to get manifold and turbo off, 1/2 hr to strip exh side casing with variable vanes (with oxy/acet bottles needed), 3/4 hr to free off, then reverse to put back together.
Am now needing excuses to drive her, oops, need to go to asda again for the 2nd time today.
Quadcamboy? Has anyone seen 3 camshafts lying around anywhere?
