    I think alot will depend on how much fitting you are able to do yourself, labour charges can be a killer!

    TBH the only things I wont be doing my self would be Rods, Dog bone, Engine mounts and bushes...
    I'm just putting a feeler out there i'm looking to do it slowly over the next 3 months or so.
    Eventually I would like to end up with a Big boy or Hybrid turbo on there.
    Might have to PM Badger...

    True that, do it while you can because soon rent and bills are gonna eat up all the money. Same position here, Ive got two jobs but I still cant afford to pay rent for a flat on my own, Cheltenhams expensive. When my stupid friends stop failing uni I'll move back out but until then it's gonna get piled into the car.
