Lower turbo

Hi, i have just bought a new turbo and would like to drop it 40mm to start with. I have a few Questions somebody might be able to help me with (you can't beat experiance.) Would i get any guard rub also the best springs to use and would it effect the ride and the warranty. Thanks

Re: Lower turbo

Uh, dumb question (from me ) : What's the benefit of "lowering" the turbo? Cooling or something???

Re: Lower turbo

ute or sedan?
not sure bout guard rub but the ride will probably br more rigid! jst like lowering any other care!
warrenty........as far as i know, any changes from stock are a problem. but it's totally up to the dealer to make the call as to whether your warrenty is still in tact or not! depends on the individual! be really nice but firm. i got a diff replaced under warrenty even though one rear tyre(the one that spins!hehe) was totally bald!.......have fun!

Hi it's a sedan. I might have to put a bit more thought into it. I dont mind the warranty so much but i dont want to ruin the ride for the looks but i have been known to change my mind.

thanks for that

Re: Lower turbo

Mate you can't get away with a thread like this without some pictures 'on the side'. If you've got a new Ford, we want to see it!
