It was a job to tell at 24mph.... :default_icon_twisted:

21 knots is about what I get flat out with normal holiday loading (lots of weight), I have twin TMD41a's on shafts, I guess that means my turbos are fine.

Can I ask how much it cost you or is it too painful to think about?

For the fuel on the day or the turbo replacement?

For the turbo, I know the pain of fuel all too well as I probably got through the best part of 1500+ litres last year. :default_blink:

Ouch, but the sort of figure I imagined, I just hope mine stay good.

I had a leaking oil cooler that was considered scrap by the volvo expert on the ybw forums with replacement costs at £850 (just for the cooler) so I took it off, cleaned it up at work and resoldered around the end cap of the tubestack, it still works fine and it's done two seasons since.

I'll always try and fix before replacing but turbo hubs need someone that can balance them properly.

Did they supply a full turbo or repair kit? I think the kit is a hub assembly with the turbine blades attached that you fit into your existing housings and much cheaper than a full turbo., there's not much to go wrong with the housings after all.

It was a reconditioned turbo from French Marine  with an exchange for the old one .
