Dealers warned of sub-standard East European turbos

Dealers and garages are being warned not to fit cut-price remanufactured turbochargers to cars after a series of engine failures following the fitting of units imported from Eastern Europe.

The call comes from Turbo Technics, the specialist UK remanufacturer of turbochargers, who said there has been a rise in the number of reported failures from garages and motorists fitting imported replacements which have subsequently failed.
