I paid about £135 for a brand new chinese 1752 turbo of ebay a couple of years.

3500 miles hard driving and track days and no trouble at all.

A bit unrelated but I have just finished my interior and thought i would put a few photos up on here so you can see what the motor will be going in. Whats the best way to put photos up on here?

 

Thanks again for all the info guys!
