AC Dodd in Salisbury. He will inspect, measure and advise, and this service was free for forum members - but check that this is still the case. He can also do the rebore but you may have to wait

If it’s a standard/standardish rebuild some 21253 pistons dished out to a suitable size will be fine, otherwise the cast Omegas will handle some serious boost.
TurboTechnics or any other reputable company will be able to rebuild your turbo.

Thanks for the responses. I did look up turbo technics. I will give them a call and see what they can do. Not building a race engine. Just want a good quality rebuild to standard spec

 

Thanks
