    Quick feedback on this. 10k perfect miles on the click since the 3 fix. Whilst this upset those charging big bucks for this service work, all I can say, this worked well for me.....

    ive heard nothing but positive things from people who have actually done it, myself included ..

    no one says its as good as taking the turbo apart and cleaning it all property .. but that doesnt mean its useless

    Overboost limp mode happened just the once , confirmed by relevant fault code , but I knew straight away what to do .

    3 Mr Muscle oven cleaner ( sodium hydroxide ) in the hot side ( did it twice ) and wiggle the actuator arm and it's not happened since and that was two years ago !
