Changed my cracked head for a 12g295. Awesome difference. If only I could change the cam without taking the engine out.


You can change the cam on a 998 without taking the engine out....



I don't fancy cutting a hole in my new inner wing though.

Tested out some 50p Carplan Eco wheel cleaner from Halfords bargain bucket. Verdict - not too bad actually, suprisingly.

Fitted yet another fuel filter. The last one nearly melted (long story).

I need to revise the entire fuel delivery set up and soon, but for now this will keep the car running.

I'm not proud. >_<
