    All valves back in the Rover head and the massive metal VVC inlet is bolted on vs a standard plastic one....looks quite impressive tbh!

    Tomorrow i'll get the cams/cam seals fitted properly then its ready to be swapped finally.

    If i get time i might also either fit the Corsa decat downpipe, or some silicone hoses thats been sitting since last year.

    Also have an AEM cone coming for the corsa as well!

        This did actually work btw!

        Got it back together on Friday there and started it on Saturday...fired up on the 3rd turn of the key. There was a nervous few minutes while the lifters filled with oil as it sounded really tappy but after that it quietened right down....really pleased.

        I've done 60 miles in it so far and its much smoother now, plus removing the precat and fitting the larger inlet has given it a bit more go.

        Might have next weekend off then will think about the Corsa lol

            It has been cheers!

            But a releif to have it going again and have my Corsa tucked up in the garage now!

            Don't know what to start on first with that;

            - silicone coolant hoses
            - decat and silencer delete

            Probably the decat and then i can have it mapped but will be the end of the month now as have run out of money for toys.

                    A bit of that but its more the wife got made redundant this week so cant really afford to pay for 2 cars on finance anymore

                    Nightmare but what can you do...i think a lot of people will be in the same boat or worse.

                    So we're keeping her Kuga, and i'll still have the Rover to cut about in.

                        Thanks Arron.

                        Don't get me wrong, we're not struggling to make ends meet or anything - just given the choice of having an extra car sitting doing nothing and wasting money vs being a bit more comfortable the choice was clear. TBH i'm probably saving 250 a month by the Corsa going which is a lot even if the wife still has a job.

                        I might get another VXR once things sort themselves out...might be another D though!
