  • another one bits the dust!

    parked up at the petrol station left the car running while i went to the cash point got back in the car pulled out of the petrol station 1st into 2nd and at about 3,000rpm and BANG big clouds smoke in the rear mirror, engine was making some horrible nosies so took it out of gear turned off the engine and rolled onto green lane, got out and gess what a trail of oil following my car , looked under the front bummper and oil gushing out all over the road great.
    The car has been moddified since feb , intercooler, full exhaust , 97 octane map,induction kit,ect, all ways warmed up and down, car is an 07 with 43,000 miles, had it since 5,000 miles ex demo.

    so the question is how much am i looking at for a new engine and turbo from vaux?
