Still plodding on with it slowly, managed to pick up a emerald loom adapter bargain price done abit more to the digi dash made the speed sensor bracket everything is wired up apart from the temp sensor just waiting for that to arrive, wired up a push start, battery mount and clamp finished, coolant pipes finished, windscreen washer bottle mounted and pipes fitted, wired up the boost gauge to light up when the head lights are on.

Not having much luck with it!!! So to begin with the turbo started to leak oil in the compressor housing so took that off and its been sent away to be check as I was taking the turbo off I noticed water between the head and block so then took the head off couldn't see anything obvious but while looking at the head I noticed the stem seals need doing so I've sent the head off to the machine shop for them to do any Work that is needed not happy!!!
