    Default Fitting a turbo on 2005 2.5 Ford

    Is it wise to fit a tubo yourself , and what do i have to watchout for? i can get n new ford turbo for R2500 and dont know what to do now. i Bought this ford with 230 000 km on the clock and the turbo whistles on 3500 rpm.
    any other suggestions?

    if it is a direct replacement then just make sure the one you get carries a warranty.

    If you can wield a spanner it shouldn't be too hard. Just take your time and take off the stuff that is in your way.

    Trying to work awkward angles makes for more frustration and inevitably more time that you wanted to save in the beginning.

    check for excessive oil in the pipes. If there is you need to clean them and the intercooler ( if any ) out.

    When you have the new one in go and read through this thread from back to front

    How are you supposed to drive a diesel??
