    just got back from marks.. after a little panic on the m25 the car is sweet!! it started juddering over 60 mph, hesitating sorta...

    1 of the little pipes come off the turbo! after putting it back on (properly) i have done nothing but grin!! turbo kicks in at 2800rpm up to about 4500, drops boost then kicks in again. the sound it makes in nuts!! hisses like a beyatch b4 dropping a very loud fluter! the handling is like new.. i have never had the car feel like that since i bought it. (shows how worn it all was) im getting about 13psi on the motorway floring it in 5th.. round town through the gears its spiking 14-15psi. its like a different car! loving it. gonna get a FMIC now so any 1 sellin 1 let me know:)
