    Nope, still on rebuilding the engine at the mo . will be about a month or so . There is another thread somewhere where someone bought one and is happy with it . (could be in the discovery section) .

    cheers Mike

    I would rather rebuild the old one than fit a Chinese one, but each to their own.

    And we love spammers..!

    Especially overpriced ones - there's a company in Bournemouth what rebuild turbos for two hundred quids and they're professionalists not do it in the bedroom hobbiesters
