Its driving now got the new -31 actuator mounted on a new bracket, got to get a boost gauge as i can't tell what the boost is but all i can say is it does have abit of poke in it!  :D

Need to reset the tappets as they've got slightly noisy but you expect that from an engine sat around for abit.

Still deciding about bonnet and bumper, should i sort them or leave them.

Did he not give you the gauge i gave him, thats a bit harsh.
Glad to hear it.
With regards to the bonnet and bumper, i wont argue that it needs a new bumper, but i liked the contrast, as you've gone a different direction with all the yellow though, howabout a yellow one?

No he didn't even mention about a boost gauge when i bought it, ah well i've found a new one for it will be buying it later.

If i can't find a black bonnet i may chequer the bottom corner so i sort of blends in abit more, i will be painting over the radio active sign now as i'm keeping the yellow colour to just under the bonnet.

Well car didn't sell for the price i want but do have a buyer interested in it at moment.

As i had it sat there i thought i'd use it so its insured for a month and i'll be driving it round for a while.
Car does drive well and the turbo spins up quite nicely for what it is, shame the turbo just died now though.  :(  Think after all that crappy oil went through it it knackered the thrust bearing so i'm on hunt for replacement TDO4 or TDO5 then i'll be setting boost and fueling for it.

Other syuff i've done to it is reset tappets, welded up the downpipe (cracked) and sold rear seats. I'm still on hunt for bonnet and front bumper as it does need a black one to mate look nice.

I thought that turbo would never go!
I was gonna say that turbos are cheap enough, but ive just had a quick look on ebay, seems theyre getting around the 100 mark.
Im pissed he threw that rat bonnet away, id rather he just said he didnt want it so i could put it on the campus :D

Yeah they have gone up abit, i was looking for a TD05 but managed to get a TD04 for a nice price so thats on its way for it now.

I've also been painting up a new front bumper for it, got an A@J Tuning front bumper for good price so giving it a few coats of black paint and see how it turns out, if all ok it'll go on the car.

I think the TD05 may have been a little big anyway Mark. TD04 is prob about right for the little 1.4  :mrgreen:

You'll be suprised mate, the TD04 spins up very quickly for the size of it. The TDO5 is only bigger on the compressor side so wouldn't add too much lag to it.

As i'm sellinjg it i'm not too fussed but would have been nice to try a TDO5.

Right this may only appeal to Mark (Sparkeysparks) as it was his old car but here's how the old TDO4 project 5 looked once i had finished with it. I've finallymanaged to sort out photobucket account so can put pic's up now.  :D
