    I guess it will come down to how confident and skilled you are. I have been playing with cars for a while and when my brother cooked his engine I thought can't be that bad. So off with the head and broke a head bolt, so out with the engine oil had turned a caramel colour. Off with the sump to check the bottom end, bearings shot. Decided to go the whole hog and did new rings, big ends, mains etc. Biggest job I had ever done, the only scary moment was after spending all that money on bits and then looking at all the pieces on the garage floor before reassembly and thinking I hope this works afterwards.


    Started first time :)

    If you fancy a challenge and can do without the car for a week or two then give it a go. I may even pop round to have a looksey.

    lol well if its just a simple manifold, turbo down pipe and a few hoses how hard can it be?! JBS think they can do the lot in 2 days! And that includes mapping!
