    Busy weekend....Hopefully!

    Whoooo, so the list goes as follows:

    Fit 80mm Tip,
    Poly bush anti roll bar bushes (Front)
    Replace outer CV boots on both sides,
    Oil and filter change,
    New battery (my 1 is f*cked, every time I get in it, it struggles to start and is becoming a PITA)
    Remove Fog lights as 1 is broken, and for better SMIC air flow.

    If I change my battery am I likely to get any issues when the new one is connected? Throttle body alignment etc? or will it be ok?

    Hopefully I can get the car on my old mans ramps, but if not it shall be all done on the drive, on or off axle stands!

    Next month will be the following:

    Front and rear bushes for the wishbones,
    rear trailing arm bushes,
    Coilovers (hopefully)
    Refurbed wheels.

    Cambelt change is very soon too. God, anything else

    Thanks Sandra,

    I will try to remember to take pictures, but I will probably leave my phone in the house as I hate phone calls and txts when im under the car haha.

    Its been a long time coming, last weekend I changed the topmounts only to find a broke spring
    hopefully the weekend is all straight forward!

    Well my 'busy weekend' turned into a nightmare as after thinking I had a squeal from a split pipe on my TIP, I then discovered its actually coming from the turbo. 1 bent fin, and slight side to side movement causing the blades to catch the housing.
    I fitted the tip and the anti'roll bar bushes so I could get the car home, but this weekend will be turbo off job to inspect what needs replacing.

    Sorry to hear about your possible turbo change there! I had to do mine a while back and it's not too quick a job, I think added up it took about 8 hours or so over two days. The turbo is a right pain to get to but I managed it so anything's possible. There should be a guide on here somewhere have a look through and see :-) . Good work with doing the other bits you had to do though, I always find I start one job and encounter something else to add to the list lol. Good luck with the turbo work bud :-) Jon
