    Hi Cazwoo27, Welcome to Copenworld.
    Sorry your having turbo trouble.
    Used Copen turbo's are like rocking horse poop! Rare! They occasionally come up on ebay but disappear quickly.

    This is the cheapest turbo I've found
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/280998083274?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:VRI&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2661

    The one from Daihatsu is more than twice that price.

    From other peoples investigations, they have found that the turbo is a sealed unit & cannot be refurbished.

    You could try to import a used one from Japan?

    E-mail Jesse streeter, he lives in Japan & imports parts for people. I've used him before. Very good service.
    Tell him your looking for a second hand Copen (L880K) Turbo. He'll try to find one & give a cost for importing to the UK.

    Your only other hope is to watch ebay & try to search breakers.

    Sounds daft, but could you not just drop in the 1.3 engine? Or is that blasphemy :)
