    Afternoon all,

    Hope's all well after a v.nice weekend.

    Now - had "the talk" with my mechanic Saturday as the work for the car is happening in 4 - 5 weeks time when im back from Amsterdam.

    Couple of things i wanted to clarify before i part with funds....

    He's estimating a day to get everyting in, FMIC, Hybrid, and MOT - maybe 2.

    As the manifold will be "accessable" i thought i would have a stab and P&P the OEM manifold. Looking at the stickies, doesn't look too difficult...just time consuming but considering it's gonna take " a day" thought i would make my self useful.

    Was also considering fitting the FMIC myself, but the whole crashbar brackets mounting the core worries me as i dont have welding kit.

    Anyone got any pointers on what to expect?
