Its not when it goes wrong mate, its when all the little niggles keep annoying you and you have to replace part after part after part after part.



Good luck though mate, rolling road day and track day when its all sorted?

hehehe might be a while yet sadly, with all the things that have to go on- probs late summer before its completed - what with the kit costing 3k.... then all the other bits (clutch, flywheel etc etcas you'll know) but yeah, im looking at getting a runaround before the sc goes on just as a backup

one thing thats worth swapping would be the engine mounts mate, while your changing the clutch/flywheel it may be worth doing them all together

Rover L-Series - 200 or 400

Cheap as chips, reliable and torquey engines and you'll sell it 6 months later for what you paid for it. Can't go wrong... :thumbup

Don't want to pee on your chips, but the request for import tax can arrive after the goods do... they don't always impound...

(I'm sure it'll be fine though, and it's only tax evasion so what's the worst that can happen?!) :b

I have been lucky that some things have come through for me without any form of import tax, have only ever been pulled up on 2nd hand parts from the states.

Saying that, ive got £400 of stuff coming from korea now so watch out for me getting stung for it all on that

from what i recall its 10% import tax and then VAT, can work out expensive


New clutch to hold more power and the poly engine mounts thats all, nothing too special this time haha, too much getting spent on it at the minute though lol
