    need a good mechanic in the south east?

    i need some recommendations, i need a manifold stud drilled out, i want to keep costs to a minimal but it will be hard, its the stud on the top row turbo side and is blowing pretty badly, i think that the head may have to come off as the bolt looks like its sitting flush with the head. does anybody know of any good mechanics around essex, pics below, thanks

    Ben does all my work and I really couldn't recommend him enough. Call Bambo on the above number and he'll sort you out! Much cheaper than £65 plus vat!

    Because of the small amount of space back there, i'd say it's a head-off job mate. Sorry.

    Chapman Auto Engineering - Garage Services in Braintree - thomsonlocal.com.

    He is a vag nut and will do pretty much anything. Give him a shout, should be fairly local to you if your in Essex. Have had a few of my cars with him for mot and a few repairs on the missus 206, quality service and good prices
