I'm not to sure to be honet , i remeber the guy i bought it off saying he has tryed setting it up on a c02 machine and couldnt so he said it needs a new carb , it idles really poorly aswell as the smoke and splutter when first accelerate , i'd be more than willing to travel if it meant i got it running correctly , i dont like driving it as it is incase i damage the internals or the turbo so the sooner the better  :)  thanks

It won't need a new carb (not come across one needing one yet) but i would say a rebuild and clean would be a good idea.
Your more than welcome to bring it down one weekend if you don't mind driving it, if you stay off boost you should be ok although as you say the sooner the better

I'll pm you my postcode mate

Yeah always worth buying rebuild kit as least you know all the gaskets and seals are new

The idle mixture screw is on the drivers side of the engine bay. It sticks out roughly 45 degrees up from the base of the carb.
