The physical turbo unit can be reconditioned but the Variable Vanes cannot be recailbrated correctly - so therefor you could still have a turbo that works but the vanes could still stick a few thousand miles down the road.

I just bought a new turbo for my 156 JTD and was told by TT that I must return my old turbo as they destroy it because too many people are reconditioning them and you're not supposed to.

They only people who can recalibrate the vanes are Alfa themselves.

cj romeo knows alot more about them so drop him a PM or do a search for TURBO
