Lovin' it & I pick up the engine Monday, will try to fit it ASAP  :mrgreen:
Got new window rubbers to fit, new engine mounts, will prob get a helix paddle clutch & drop it in as well while I'm there & get that turbo pushing 1.5 bar boost.. I will then stick it on the rollers to see what she makes & then can't wait to get it to pod !

That clutch plate looks knackackered better let me test it out for you  :lol:

As said the other day matey I am more than happy to help with the engine in an eve to be honest we should be able to get an engine out and in within one eve anyway  :mrgreen:  and prob most bits bolted back on aswell ready to start.

Eve's are best for me as I really struggle daytimes at the weekends due to the Miss's and the kids :)

Well I don't think this weekend will be very good anyway, I need to go to Marky Marks on Sat morning & then fit a fuel pump, new filter & AVCR in my old Evo & set it up for more boost. Then Sunday I'm out all day anyway... Will look at the weather & book you up  :mrgreen:

Hope to get the engine in this week if the rain holds off.
Got new engine mounts to fit at the same time so should be alot better.

Got the engine out but hit a slight setback, looks like I will need a new valeo cover & release bearing to put in :(
Plus I had to change the exhaust manifold as it had a stud snapped in it, nice one James  :P
Oh & one of the new engine mounts is different, the gearbox side for some reason doesn't have the metal block on it  :?

So need a clutch, rear arch, sideskirt clip kit & a new manifold gasket before I can get her back on the road !  :evil:
