Great job, I only briefly hit that BHP before the turbo wastegate said it couldn't handle it.

Are you running the standard MAF, injectors and pump or did you upgrade them?

I think it make the car look classy and take a bit of the aggression away. Sleeper style as brother Dashworth says.

And then I had a slight problem on the M1



A rod decided it wanted to escape and made a brake for it.!!!



New engine this weekend.!!!

Oh and it worked out to be 40 for my powdercoating as I am advertising for them aswell now. Wink

I have been waiting for the write up.
Where abouts in the engine is the picture taken? I think it is the bottom of the crank case on the gearbox side. That looks like a turbo oil pipe in the top left. Is that a piston head lying at an angle having left its con-rod?
What was the cause of the rod escaping? What can we learn from this so it doesn't happen again.

Now what lump are you having fitted? Very Happy

We can fix it, make it better, faster, stronger.
