Cheers Guys, I'm pretty chuffed with the result, its damn near spot on the rumoured figures i had heard, it pulls like a train and cruises nice, for 4 months hard driveway graft with some mates i think its a job well done :)

 

Might convert the wagon next lol

Quick update, just covered near on 400 miles to oxfordshire and back for a weekend with family and to do the MK1 nats, unfortunately we never made the mk1 nats as we had a bit too much BBQ and beer lol, maybe next year lol but we did manage no faults and even let my uncle, who used to own my car before me experience the new motor and in doing so i finally got a vid of it running :)

 

 

 

Cheers For following
