Wastegate checking/adjusting

What sort of price would i be looking at to get this done and who would you recommend to do it. Birds is probably the closest [known] tuner specialist to me.

Its a DPs off job unfortunately, so a good few hours.

It's only 1 hour tops to do the check & adjust once the pipes are off.

If the front one needs adjusting that's more work to move the water pump and intercooler for access as the front turbo is reversed to the rear i.e. the actuator is between the turbo and the block so you can't gt to it easily.

Woods did mine when I changed back to factory DPs and then when I refitted the AR ones again later on.

IIRC it was 200 + VAT (4 hours) to remove DPs, check adjust and refit DPs.

Not to bad if you are changing DPs anyway.

Maybe combine it with a full service to help soften the blow?

Maybe a good idea although quite a way off for the next service. May even just leave it and get the Vargas stage 2.

Are Birds looking at supplying Vargas turbo upgrades instead of TD based kits they currently sell ?
