In the interest of everyone, I placed a quick call in with Reading HO to confirm this. They said that since August they had a bump in their prices to cater for inflation and Brexit. Porsche classic members and Porsche Club members now get offered a discounted rate of 140 plus vat but depending on the job and the circumstances they will go down to 125 plus vat.

Personally, if you are genuinely looking at undertaking a turbo rebuild at P get in touch with me so we can speak over the phone. After which I'll get in contact with Tim and see about what the 'real' price is for this job as Im confident the labour price could be pushed lower, especially if I have aline of 8 potential customers looking to execute of the job.

If you are a over enthusiastic fanboy of an Independent garage looking to try and defame my contributions. Don't bother trying to contact me as I'll be naming you on this platform publicly.

There are too many contributing Rotten Apples in this forum as I know most members are aware of.

So is there anything we can do to protect the turbos and underside better? E.g turbo blankets/heat resistant underseal etc...? Or how about some sort of custom undertray? do the latest 991's not have a tray which could be altered?

I have switched to all SS nuts and titanium header bolts (Ken previously removed my rusty ones for me so it was an easy job to do).

Anything else to suggest?

Hi Simon. I'm currently living the 'holed turbo' dream. I'm in Reading and it would be great to have a chat. Have sent you a PM thumbsup

Hi

You can order used regenerated left and right turbo from Poland. They have something like eBay it is call Allegro.pl. They give you 24 months warranty. One turbo cost GBP 1165.52. Sometimes someone sells regenerated turbos for £600. There is also a lot of specialized garages which repair the turbo much cheaper then here in UK.
