Default VF43 turbo

Fresh off the UK300 tonight, selling my VF43 turbo. Bought from another member last year ([email protected]) and has covered 5000 miles since. Total mileage is now 60k. Excellent condition, no play in shaft.

***UPDATE - There was a crack found in the wastegate area, confirmed this morning by a local specialist, and a common fault so I am told. Price adjusted*********

This has been running at 318bhp at the road wheels since it was fitted last year, and is a fantastic turbo IMO.






Price 350 inclusive of fully insured delivery

Is that a crack on the wastegate in the second pik?

There are no cracks, It has been fully checked over. Was running perfectly on the car with no issues, and there is no damage to the unit at all.

FFS,

I've just checked it again, there are no cracks visible anywhere on it at all.

Again, if you are not interested in it, don't post!

There clearly is a crack in the second picture. This is common for all the VF series turbos and does not affect the operation of them at all. You will do well to find one without a crack in it as they are all like it.

Thanks for the comment.

It is going in tomorrow to be checked by a local specialist, then will edit the first post if necessary.
