    Bit of advice please chaps..

    Hello ASN family!

    been hiding for a while because of work but I'm back as some may know, I posted about my last trip to R-tech where Niki said that my turbo was just old and my actuator was weak which is why the car didnt make the power it should which I accepted, but thinking about it now, I need to get a few things sorted with the car as I've put it off for a while. Is it worth me getting a new actuator (bearing in mind that I'm going BT in the future but I'm still gathering bits for it) even though the turbo is old? I want to get a DP and sports cat because I still want to car to perform well.

    Ontop of that I have a bluddy knocking noise when I turn left and right, so I'm gonna change the front arb bushes, wishbone bushes and bearings. Failing that then it's the bluddy steering rack! And my transfer box has a leak at the prop! Prop seal perhaps?

    last but (probably) not least my intercooler pipes connecting to that iron pipe on both sides aswel as my brake booster pipe is leaking.. Lots of work for me but gona spread it out first.. What do you think I should get done first and is it worth the new actuator?

    Any help is appreciated peeps!

    I'd love to do a side by side 3rd gear run between our cars on a private road just to see how equal our cars are Gops! Should be quite level(and interesting).

    Defo up for that! I think because of my actuator, might be behind so on bills dyno day I might see what he thinks about it.
