Expensive bit of the jigsaw.

An expensive bit of this massive jigsaw landed today.
Here is a hybrid turbo, made to suit the VW T3 1.6TD exhaust manifold and downpipe, oil feed pipe and return line. It also has the added advantage of the turbo support bracket still fitting. The turbine and compressor are that of a tdi so physically it looks like a JX turbo but behaves like a 1Z turbo and has a conventional waste gate actuator so it can still be operated by the N75 boost pressure control solenoid. Well, that’s the theory anyway!
