Subject: Re: Is it fixed?

It appears no one is quite sure why the DI cassette has cured the problem, but I'm just glad it's cured. I just hope it doesn't come back when the take off the test kit on put on the new one ;-). I've still got the same exhaust on, County Saab replaced it temporarily but it gave no improvement. So they took it off again :-( I must admit, having the car fixed has totally reinvigorated my enthusiasm for it, I had forgotten it was so quick!!! I was planning to trade it in and go back to an Alfa Romeo, but now I think I'll keep it for a while. I do intend to do some mods (but not on the turbo!), probably a LSD from Abbott Racing to try and improve grip coming out of tight corners. I also want to reduce tyre wear, getting through a set of fronts every 8000 miles is ridiculous, hopefully the LSD will help but I'll probably consider uprating the shocks as well (but I don't want it lowered). Other than that, when/if the exhaust reaches the end of it's life, I'll probably replace it with a stainless steel one. I'm now on the look out for a new service agent, anyone have any recommendations? I live in Milton Keynes, (that's in England!).
