thats the whole point eck...normally costs a lot but my mate is well capable of fitting it and doing any required maintenance on the engine..

im sure if it breaks through bad workmanship however he'll sort it but he wnt be responsible if its damaged through misuse...

and foxy if u went to him ud have it dun by now instead of just talking about it....

the kit is expensive so that the companys making it make money from them.

More info is needed about the shafts/mounts i think. I would want more info before even thinking of not using the m-tec stuff

Where are the supplied engine from?

yes boab it was my mate that fitted my engine and please explain when it ran like a bag of sh**e?!?!

The engine that is on offer at the moment is the engine that is in my mates car..

as for shafts and mounts he has a friend in a company that will make these up for him.. the mounts are basically a copy of the m-tech ones.. it would depend whether he had a full car or not if the hubs were to get changed

didnt sound or seem to be very healthy when i seen it up the retail park just after you had it done.. looked liek it kept cuttin out on you and sounded like it had a Serious Misfire (when driving not when you were making it pop)
