    The bad news seems to be endless with the car! It died suddenly and would not start. On closer inspection the valves are now bent
    Going down the new engine route, as I don't know what else could possibly be damaged!
    We think it might have been caused by shotblasting the rocker cover. Even though I gave it a really good clean.

    That's a real ****ter bud, hope you can sort it quickly and it's not too expensive although everything usually is with an s-body ha..

    Good job on the engine bay as well, need to do mine too really soon. How did you go about colour matching the engine bay paint? It's gray in mine and I imagine colour matching that is gonna be a pain.

    Well the price is reasonable compared to what I've heard people have been quoted elsewhere haha.

    Well, I haven't! The paint is no where near, but did it up to a seam so it's less noticeable. My dad must have bought about 10 different shades of white. It's almost impossible to match!

    SHE'S BACK!!

    Got the car back last Thursday from Slide motorsport. It makes a change to have an engine that doesn't feel like it could blow at any moment!Packham's White Spec R

    In the process of stripping the engine down to see if I can see any damage to anything, still not sure what exactly caused it to die but we think it was the shot-blasting.

    As for the gearbox it turns out the shifter was the issue, now the uras shifter is fitted all is good!
    So I'll be selling a box in a month or so with a brand new gear set.

    Stopped off for a few pictures












    And of course it would be a shame to waste the old engine!

    So my turbo blew up! Oil seals went. Had to do the right thing and upgrade. So went for the disco potato, feels like a different car!
    Only problem is its over boosting massively. Boost controller is only set to .6 bar at 25%duty but going past 1 bar some how.

    Also fitted so new rear lights
