    Sorry Sevv, realised I didn't reply this morning. Yeah, Repco probably would, or Super Cheap Auto. I got mine from Auto one.

    I'm in Darkest Africa, so the exchange rate (or lack of one) works against me, but I'll do the maths and see what the story is.

    Currently the car's in the garage at home while I wait for all my goodies, think it's a good idea to cover up the turbo inlet? I was thinking it may just be a clever idea to put something over it to make sure nothing gets in there...

    So my saga continues...

    My 034 Motorsport parts arrived in the post yesterday, so I've started getting the engine bay prepped for all the new arrivals. Anyway, was taking the charge pipe off and noticed a weird, dark looking line on the exhaust manifold which, upon closer inspection, is a nice big crack. :crying:

    Any recommendations for a decent replacement?

    I also noticed the front left driveshaft's boot is broken, so I hope there's nothing lurking there...
