    havn't been on here for a while so thought i'd put a little update......Progress cheers had really lost interest in this car with work comitments and loads of other stuff goin on Crying or Very sad but got a second wind now so might me more updates coming soon Very Happy
    as i mentioned when i was rebuilding the head one of the cam cap studs stripped out....the joys of an e-gay purchased engine! problem was these studs are M7 and most the local machine shops had no M7 heli-coils even my local VW specialist! so was a bit stuck for a while but found these guys G Bland and sons located in barnsley, really friendly sorted me out and very reasonable rates, picked the head up yesterday 20 for two helicoils, im happy Very Happy thought it would be worth mentioning incase anyone else is in or gets in the same situation! only problem is i have now misplaced the f**king stud Rolling Eyes and vw parts aint open till monday....typical! hopefully have head rebuilt and back on the car by the end of the week Rolling Eyes so did some manifold modifying yesterday instead....

    Stop it!

    I'm easily influenced by others!

    I've only just finished the KR swap... this will be a winter build project for next year I think.

    Yours is looking good though!
