    Why even bother getting a new one?!

    Getting a hybrid replacement will cost less and will give your more driveability ;-)

    yeah, I know, but then I will want bigger injectors and bigger fuel pump and bigger MAF and... I don't want to spend that much .
    I contacted Turbo Technics to see what are the options. They told me 390GBP for a full refurb, if they're able to source a hot side. My exhaust housing is cracked very close to the turbine and also on the usual spots. And there's no spares...

    Naaah, no absolute need for all these complementary mods. A respectable tuner will do a remap based on your actual setup.

    Would give you some more headroom in the near future.

    Been there, have a 04 Titanium Grey V70R myself

    Use brake cleaner to remove all that oil residue and see if the IC is cracked on the plastic end piece. It's where they commonly fail. Mine had a 3" crack that was hard to see but obviously opened up under boost.

    Pepinosport, can you resize your uploaded images mate. They are way too big and slightly out of focus. Will be almost impossible for phone users to see your pictures

    Replacing the stock IC with an aftermarket FMIC is one of the best mods you can do on these cars for many reasons, here are a few..

    1. Longevity of a true, all aluminium IC with no plastic components.
    2. Aluminium cores are typically larger, so have a greater ability to reduce intake temperatures dramatically.
    3. A true FMIC does not suffer with 'heat soak' unlike the stock IC.
    4. The secondary stock IC has been proven in the past to make little to no difference to intake temps, due to the very small hoses that connect it to the larger core.
    5. Aesthetically pleasing, compared to the stock setup.
    6. Will reduce your intake temperature significantly, track proven to as much as 35*C, thus an immediate noticeable performance increase, especially during warmer weather.

    I highly recommend an aftermarket FMIC.

    sorry about the pics, I thought they were automatically resized

    So yeah, the idea was to buy a DO88 FMIC but I kinda ran out of money in between and bought a used OEM for 50€. The original was already repaired and I didn't want to spend money repairing over a reparation

    However, luck was on my side this week and I found a facelift turbo for... 60€! This might give me some room for the FMIC, I have to check numbers...

    It looks very good, with no cracks. It's currently in the turbo shop being inspected

    I took the intake housing from the old turbo for the new one. It was actually the only part of the turbo that wasn't damaged

    Here's an interesting thought:

    I had my 383.000km injectors verified, cleaned and with new microfilters and they are now as good as new.

    I had another set of injectors with half the mileage coming from a friends '05 that cracked a liner. I thought this set would be better, but upon verification at the injection shop they returned uneven values and some injectors were more than 10% off, especially at higher rpm.

    This made me think that all those horror stories about cylinder cracking are more related with a poor maintainance of the injection system rather than the actual block being butter.

    It wouldn't help cylinder temperatures having uneven fuelling across cylinders. Though there may be allowances built into the mapping to account for some discrepancies/age related "wear"

    Angle gear on its way to Sweden to be remanufactured by Maskin&Bil.

    Rims sent to paint shop right before the COVID ££££storm, so idk how long it will take to have them back :/
    Will be fitted with new PZero 4 tyres.

    I also went medieval with the angle gear sleeve, but I'm afraid I won't be able to remove it without heat. Can't buy a blow torch because everything is closed
