The over boost sensor isn't essential. You can tuck them away somewhere, but make sure you tape the ends up properly, if they touch down it'll kill the spark.

My mate works in a Plumb Center and got me loads of different sized ones, much cheaper than anywhere else. Is there one in Stevenage? If not I could see if he'll order in the same as he got for me.

As for the chatter, I've had a K&N and 2 Ebay special filters and they all sounded pretty much the same, it was only different length pipe runs and bends that seemed to make a difference.

You can buy DV blanking plugs.

Or you can improvise, saw a bit off a broomstick.  :mrgreen:

looking around the car while cleaning out the spares i notice tho the sills are solid there is a little rust showing would this be mot failure atm my main thing is to get it started then after that the bodywork as it is in need of respray but if sills need replaying is how much is it roughly

Surface rust shouldn't be an issue, but it would be wise to treat it before it gets an worse.

If you can poke your fingers through it then it's almost certainly an MOT failure.  :lol:
