I know Ali burrows motorsport in Ireland is selling delivery milage vf48 turbos at really good money. They removed from a standard car that was being changed for motorsport. If don't replace with another vf22 it will need a remap. eBay turbos can be rubbish but some genuine second hand ones are good.
