    Engine is now out after the belt came off and mashed the head up, only to find the second turbo on there is now mullared also!

    Now ive run out of money collecting the engine and ordering a second turbo and cant pay the garage for the work.

    time to cut my losses walk away and of course go on the dole as no car means no job/money.

    Guess im out, c ya!

    Exhausted family coffers a long time ago doh!
    Nope im on my own with this one, in hindsight id have rented a garage and done the work myself, looks like the engine has spat something out somhow into the intake. Found a kkk turbo cheap to make do for now, willing to do a trade with my remapped ecu for a stock ecu if anyones interested (just incase the turbo goes to jelly!).

    Taking the turbo to the garage tomorow, then its time to have a clearout of things for sale and raise 400 to cover the labour...
