Just a quick note to say I ordered one of the Japanese ebay 'Bnoon bolts' which is an oil restrictor bolt for the turbo.

I received it today and the holes are identical measurements to the original american bnoon bolt - so anyone worried about it being a cheap imitation, it's not. I paid I think £13, as opposed to £35 plus import fees from america.

I got this Japanese version about 2 weeks ago but haven't fiitted it yet. The quality looks good but will it need a fresh washer to be on the safe side?

Might have to add this to my list of mods - might just wait till I actually pick the car up and see if it's got a smoking problem first :D

If the problem is serious, happens after a couple of minutes on idle, your seals may have gone too far and this mod won't work. I would check it out before buying. If it is a dealer, then I would want it fixed.

Chances are the original is bigger than both.

I agree.

Dealer if under warranty
Bnoon bolt as a precaution
New turbo if constant smoking due to failed seals

Hmm. I measure my Japanese bolt and compared it to the measurements from the us forum where bnoon tells you how to make your own and my jap bolt is identical. 1.6mm small hole. 5.9mm big hole.

Would it be worth me doing this then to prevent my turbo seals going? Does it cause any problems having it in (lower performance or anything?)
Has anyone got a recent link?

Thanks
