my mate bought a brand new fabia vrs, had the turbo worked by turbo technics through skoda and had them fit it and it is still covered by the skoda warranty. it pumps out just short of 250 bhp and 500nm of torque. absolutely flies. well it did till it spunked its load outta the exhaust. apparantly the waste gate was sticking and at times was boosting at 3 bar :twisted: . skoda honoured it though and give him an engine out of an a4 that fell off of a car transporter backwards :oops: . fair play to em.

im 28 yrs old, why the fuck would i wanna bullshit for. he is only 19 as well, fuck knows what his insurance is. when skoda opened it up they said there were signs of severe abuse. massive play in shaft and the cylinders were all scored. apparantly he absolutely rags it from cold and treats it as a 19 yr would treat anything i suppose. we were doin a go karting thing when i first had a go in it and the next person to take it out that night were the ones that it blew up on. i would have felt well bad if it had been me but thay didnt give a fuck!

Jamie,

You may have reached the grand old age of 28 but the workings of car manufacturers' warranty schemes seems to have passed you by. I can assure you that replacement engines, or other parts, replaced under warranty do not come from Audi A4's that have fallen off the back of a transporter.

Before you ask, "yes" I have owned a Skoda, a MK1 Octavia VRs and "yes" I have warranty work carried out and I am sure that the parts used were not from a damaged car off a transporter.

What a load of bull, I say again. Your "story" is just that!

ok, we will have to agree to disagree on this one  :D  the audi engine was a compromise between them as the engine was sent to swindon i think to be analysed and they could not prove it was the abuse that did it and not the waste gate that was down to them. i have got one thing wrong though, it is 230 bhp and not 250 as i have just spoken to him, 190 before it was even remapped.

i think i might smell it as well now looking at that as there is no way that amount of work has been done on it. i have never seen a print out for it either and it is hard to tell the power of a diesel as i am used to petrol cars. only thing i could base it on is my battered old vito and dont think it is much of a comparison. :D
