I have just noticed that you are looking for somebody in uk to forward a turbo kit for you.
No problem if you want me to do it.
Just to let you know how I have been getting on with my own 2003T.
Had turbo rebuilt but still getting oil passing turbo seals
into air intake.
Took turbo back to repair shop and saw it running on test rig for 45 minutes.
Not a drop of oil passing seals
even at 85 psi oil pressure and 35000 revs.
Turbo guy reckoned the problem was most likely high crankcase pressure not allowing oil to return to the sump quickly enough and the oil building up inside the turbine body above the level of the spindle and then leaking past the piston ring type seals on the shaft.
On reading up about the IHI turbos the same basic turbo is used on the diesel VW Passat and they have a smoke problem.
The answer to their problem is to put a restricting banjo bolt on the oil feed to the turbo with a 1mm hole in it.
Interestingly most turbos have a restrictor inside the turbo itself but mine did not.
I didn't want to chance going down to a 1mm hole but fitted a banjo bolt with a 2mm hole.
This reduced my smoke a lot but I still had a problem when pushing the engine on a bit.
2000 revs no problem, 2500 revs smoke.
I then thought about the crankcase pressure side of the thing.
I replaced the small bore pipe from the rocker cover to the air intake with a 1/2 inch pipe and routed it through a catch can to collect any oil in the fumes and then cut a hole in the air cleaner to take the bigger pipe as the original hole in the air cleaner restricts the flow to about 1/8 inch.
Have only ran the engine a couple of hours since but the usual black tide mark across the transom has disappeared. Long may it continue.
I realise that this is only a band aid solution and that I need to address the real problem ( hopefully piston rings and honing the bores will do the job but that is a job for the winter)
My address if you want to use it.
