  1. This maybe a bit highbrow for some of you. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F383477219178
  2. I had a mk3 grandad with a 1.8 pinto in it. Not brisk. Very not brisk.
  3. I don’t have a spare set, no. You can get nozzles easily of fleabay to make yours bigger, the Volvo has .216 holes which are the biggest standard ones afaik. My limited knowledge says that that pep up needs the turbo as well, and manifold to fit it else it just makes smoke.
  4. A zastava... https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F223940940424
  5. Ta daaa Another years ticket. Apparently, so the jungle drums say, any warning light on is a hard fail now. I've just stopped caring for 12 months. 😁
  6. 323 turbo https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F333539503076
  7. There were loads of lasers in Devon. I remember the disappointment the first time I looked through the windows and saw the complete lack of handbrake elbow pad. Festa mk2 retained an illuminated choke nob all the way down to the base. Pure decadence.
  8. Shouldn’t fail on that no. Mr tame mot tester has genuinely had a terrible week and his mind was clearly elsewhere. Not to worry, all under control I am assured. 😁. Seems to be a SEP at the moment, which is nice. Supertom is on it. Apparently.
  9. It’s that time of year again. Off to to see the man from the ministry, which provokes some thought, as it was shortly after this last year that it shit itself. It’s had a busy year, engine swap, hgf, new shoes and suspenders, I’ve learned lots. Including just how much more poke there is hidden in these engines. It’s had a cheeky decat, egg blanked, turbo boost max pressure upped a bit and it goes like stink. Comparatively. Bah. Set to be sorted Monday. Probably. I was being grumpy and fucked off that the turbo nutter bastard engine isn’t in it yet, but as it hadn’t even been considered a year ago I think I might be being too hard on myself. Some skills we seek to learn, others we seek to lose. However, A Great Leap forward has been made with tnb engine today though as we now have oil feed to the new turbo. This Has been surprisingly problematic to sort out as the old vag fittings are big, course and chunky, whilst the holset feed hole is smaller, more delicate and in the wrong place. After much farting about I Ended up with SuperTom making an adapter out of 2 other adapters for me. He’s fab but I’m going to prioritise learning to weld to next. #lifegoals
  10. Does the choke mechanism shut off fully? How shitty is the butterfly/ venturi/ float bowl? What do the plugs look like? How certain are you the carb/air filter are properly attached to the vehicle?
  11. Great News....... ffs. That’s terrible. Just why. It’s never going to be. “Great news, you’ve broken down. “At absolute best it maybe a “Small Relief you shouldn’t have to push it home on your own in the rain “ Hope it’s minor, good luck.
