Back on the road!!! :D
Only took a Month to get it running right and MOT'd after eating its turbo :lol:
That Month wasnt solid work, due to home life, school holidays and normal work though.

Due to the number of times I had the cat section and Turbo in and out, I reckon I could do it blindfolded now :lol:

Fitted some shiny Turbosmart recirc valves! Bit of a squeeze but they’re in! Image
Also changed the oil, spark plugs & coils.

So much for not modifying this car! ImageImage

MHD install today. Went smoothly with no hiccups and car seems to be good so far after a 80 mile test drive with mixed driving.

Next up will be FMIC and DP with some fresh plugs and coils for good measure. Then to stage 2

Sorry hear mate. The noise could be from the door seals. The outer felt part of the doors. Mine caused most of the creaking noise when cornering even when on flat roads. I bought some cloth tap and tapped over those parts and the noise was gone.

The rear top mount noise only happened on uneven bumps.

I smirked at the stunning service advisor when she told me, she soon realised what she had said. Unfortunately it was probably big Dave in the garage that worked on my shaft!
