Hello,

 

I am wondering if it is possible to replace the turbo on the VXT with engine and rear clam in place or if clam needs to be removed or both?

As access visually seems small, I prefer to ask as I am thinking swapping my K04 standard for a K04 stage 3 Hybrid or K06 stage 2 Hybrid turbo but not if need to pull engine, I will wait.

 

Anyone who did it before and can give input would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Cedric

   Access is a bit tight, as with everything on these cars, but you can remove the turbo from underneath with the clam on and engine in situ.

I can confirm that.

Thanks, will look again removing underneath and exhaust to see if I can get access. Appreciate your feedback.
