brought the car back 5 months ago in bad way with a second hand turbo for  400 notes, decided to start ripping its guts out last week to see what was wrong

a nice lump of turbo internals chewed up in the sump killing a conrod and the crank








finished off the last bits yesterday

shes back  :twisted:  took her for a quick spin after , having no tax or mot spoiled my fun quickly though  :cry:

its been a long 2 weeks putting it all back together with lots of headaches and even more F words but after having a quick drive in it yesterday it put a massive smile back on my face  :D
