    Hi, just wondering what do you guys recommend replacing from the engine once the cars done over 80k, I have a new flywheel, cambelt, clutch, dv, airfilter. Anything else, I think i might need a new exhaust as its quite boomy at around 3k revs for some reason, maybe it has a hole?

    Also how long do the turbos last? and what other belts and parts are there to change?

    Thanks dudes

    unfortunately the waterpump is usually done at the same time as the cambelt. You may as well get the cambelt, tensioners and waterpump done all as one, as it's mostly labour...
