Just a wee update for you all.

The work is 3 hours from completion!!!!

But the bar-stewards who sold me the engine sold me a complete engine so it didn't come with inlet manifold, ECU or loom ??

So trading standards as i've been mis-sold an item.

But wondering how much it be to get an inlet and ECU with loom and just GET IT DONE!!!!

I think Gez is having someone port and polish his C16XE head for him (i think)

Nah still not back yet, getting manic depression now
But should be this week now so fingers crossed.

It's a friend doing it it is and she wouldn't have the facilities to do that im afraid.

It's over due now in fairness.

If i was more on the ball i'd have either bought a vectra and literally swapped everything or got WarrenG/DaveyLC to do it!
