In the last year, it's had a recon gearbox, recon turbo, new clutch, new discs and pads, 2 new balljoints and 1/2 a new exhaust. It's got 2 new tyres on the front, I put one on the back and fitted a new brake caliper and it passed the MOT. Even the cruise works! Only thing that doesn't is the passenger side rear electric window. So far, the car has cost me about 190 all in! It needs some tidying - mainly the rust on the arches, but apart from that it's perfect! Once I fit the missing dump valve, then I'll tweak the APC. I don't want much more out of it, but I'd like the boost to come in quicker and a little more urge in the mid range. I had one of Matt's APCs and it was pretty much spot on. That's what I want out of mine. Thanks! mike
