The missing at high RPM has now been removed. As said before I had changed the spark plugs after find some had no terminals or not screwed down correctly.

Take a look at the dizzy cap..

What a joke! I stuck it in my shot blast cabinet on low pressure and could now see how bad it really was. It must have had star ship millage.

Picked up a bargan on ebay. My new roof rack. 40

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mont-Blan...72.m2749.l2649

Fit's very nicely so if you want a cheap rack buy this!

I'll be raising the roof of my shed. It's getting a 12" rise.

When I bought my shed from Ebay I clearly did not read the listing correcly. The height from floor to top of door was around 5 foot. I raised it about 5" but at the time I was very poor so had to live with my cheap and nasty shed.

What a pain it's going to be taking the roof off but it's worth it. No more hitting my head!

it's just my luck. The sodding alternator bolt snapped off just before catching a flight. I only knew it was broken when I landed and went to leave the airport carpark.

After some bodging I made it home!

I decided to get rid of the useless exhaust valve which opens the 3" exit. It kept jamming up so in the pictures is my boost operated version i'm having welded up right now.

Also going is the 16T turbo and going in will be a 19T. I went with a CHRA 19t and a 19t housing. My 16T (none oil leaking) turbo will be for sale in next month.

Does your old turbo need modded flange/etc or does it stick to stock mountings?

Hi,

My 16T will slot into the exhaust housing of a 13c (standard turbo) My car has a angled downpipe but i can't see it being an issue as it's the inside you swap.

However my 19T will fit a 13c turbo exhaust housing but the inlet side would not fit hence why I had to pay out for the inlet.
