RARRRRRRRRR it runnning
and moves under it own power

got key thing and found out the donor car dont have a transponder :S

so after arsing about i changed the wiring loom for the spare on i had and ecu "cheers matt" and turned the key


woooooooooooooooooooooooo it started




now couple of questions
it cut out a couple of times by itself.
could this be because i have a 50amp 8v alternator on it? i have the 70amp 16v one so ill fit that and see.

and it sounds tappety :S so could this be because its been standing for ages?
will changing the oil cure it? i have vaux oil here so it should i hope

tapping should go after a few secs on a car used every day. When i did my head gasket the engine wasnt turned over for 2 weeks, tapped its ass off for 10 mins afterwards
